Whitby Abbey is situated on a cliff top that overlooks the town of Whitby and the harbour. It is probably Whitby�s most visited attraction due its historical significance and heritage. The abbey dates back to the 7th Century when Oswy, King of Northumbria, sent a Northumbrian princess named Hilda to found an abbey. Today, Whitby Abbey contains a shrine to St. Hilda. The abbey has had a fascinating history, having been destroyed by the Vikings but rebuilt by the Normans.
