Whitby Abbey

Whitby, North Yorkshire

April 2019

Whitby Abbey is an iconic English Heritage landmark and scheduled monument located on the headland at Whitby in North Yorkshire. We have created an explorative and intergenerational experience for visitors, with continuity across all areas of the site. This includes site-wide interpretation, and a new permanent exhibition in the adjacent Cholmley House. We drew inspiration from the meandering paths laid by the Abbey’s fallen stones, and the dramatic landscape of the headland. We collaborated with Dirty Northern Company, who delivered the graphic design.
