A festival celebrating all things Goth, the Whitby Goth Weekend sees thousands of people, dressed to impress, enjoying bands, DJs, shops and bars at the Spa Pavilion on Whitby’s West Cliff.
As well as the main event, the festival tends to take over the town, which becomes filled with people dressed in their finery, visiting the various locations around town that get involved.
Tickets for the main festival cost £55 for the weekend or £29 for one day and can be purchased from the website below.
Getting there: Trains run regularly from York (on the East Coast Mainline) to Whitby Station. There is plenty of parking in Whitby but check for restrictions if you are planning to leave your car overnight.
