English Heritage will open its Stanton Williams-designed visitor centre in Whitby, North Yorkshire, at Easter. The £5.6 million restoration project is in the ruins of the medieval Whitby Abbey. It marks the completion of the Whitby Abbey Headland Project and the restoration of the rare 17th century cobbled garden courts and abbey.

The new visitor centre contains galleries and a shop which have been integrated into two floors within the remains of the ruins.The visitor centre combines modern technology with displays of artefacts excavated from the headland.

It will open on March 30.
