Aside from Christopher Lee's cape there's really nothing of note to see here...costs £3 a throw and you can go round it in 3 minutes literally! Mainly poor manikins with a few... read more

You pays your money, you takes your choice. Despair has its own calms. How blessed are some people, whose lives have no fears, no dreads; to whom sleep is a blessing that comes nightly, and brings nothing but sweet dreams.

This is difficult to review based on my unfavorable experience with my 8 year old daughter. We went in as daughter has recently been on a ghost train and was feeling confident. Once in the confidence evaporated. She was gripping my hand like her life depended on it 😀. Very quickly she went into a panic, and I'm not surprised.... More

It's good in that, it's so bad that it's good. Worth £3.00? Absolutely. No Actor there the day we went but it was still worth a go around.

Aside from Christopher Lee's cape there's really nothing of note to see here...costs £3 a throw and you can go round it in 3 minutes literally! Mainly poor manikins with a few brief animations and someone jumps out at you at one point...yawn-have an ice cream instead...it'll last longer!

My gf and I decided to go in the Dracula Experience after riding on the excellent £3 boat trip out of the harbour. Having paid the exact same amount, £3, each to get into the Dracula Experience, my gf completed missed the Christopher Lee Dracula cape they had hung up there as it was poorly lit and very badly signed....

Although I have been there a few times but I make a point of always going back. The place captures the soul of Whitby as the main inspiration for the Dracula book. Great for kids and adults

Well that's 10 minutes I'll never get back! The £3 entrance fee for this terrible 'tour' could be better spent further down the road at the arcade and it would certainly last a lot longer as well.

A lot of people on here complaining but it is what is is it's a ten minute walk through ( if that) and I found it absolutely petrifying I was literally screaming and couldn't get past the live actor . My son who is 5 thought it was hilarious. I also get scared in ghost trains which is in effect... More

Our visit mirrored that of many other here. Too dark to see where you were going. Notice said an actor was on duty, but no one appeared. It was over in literally a few minutes. We felt totally robbed of our entrance fee. AVOID!

Even a one star rating seems to much, only lasted a couple of minutes and wasn't scary at all, I was expecting live actors etc, the only scary thing was making sure you didnt fall over/trip in the pitch black. Not worth the money Wouldn't recommend at all to anyone
