Why is there a Dracula museum in Scarborough- its not like he was from Scarborough is it? lol

It's in Whitby. He was from Whitby and loved fish and chips. With loads of ketchup. Something like that.

They guy was saying 'over there is the 350 steps that Dracula ran up when he jumped out of his coffin' and then she said 'what? he's real??!'

Well yeah, I think in the story that's where he came by boat.

Serious, ask her about the museum with real life Draculas screaming at us, she was terrified and had to run out of the fire escape!

The only reason he stopped biting people was because he got loads of batter stuck on his fangs.

He was shipwrecked in Whitby on the way over from Transgenger and once slain was buried there in the Church at the top of the 199 steps. Supposedly there was a Count Dracula (apparently not a vamp) who was buried there.

Didnt know the chippy (the one that won all the awards) was owned by a skunk, I shall not enter again.

Went to the British Kitchen last weekend with the missus. Gotta say that it was pretty good - at least up to the standard of the Fish & Chip room (JBR) on a good day.

On another note, people keep telling me that there is a new Donor Kebab shop opened on Beach Road but buggered if I can find it!!! Still have to traipse up to Discovery Gardens for the ultimate hangover food.

Well, aye. Small Town in Yorkshire and all that. At least we know and accept our place, unlike the barcodes who think their main rivals are Real Madrid and Man U.

Someone from Middlesbrough or who supports the Boro. It's an industrial town...well, used to be... hence the smog reference.

I know the Donner place you mean, but I'm not sure if it's open yet. It's further down, close to Citibank I think (past Umm al Sheif Road).
