Travelling to Scarborough?

Scarborough is situated in North Yorkshire on England’s East coast. A popular holiday destination since Victorian times, this old spa town has lost none of its character and charm. With beautiful Georgian architecture, glorious sandy beaches and a bustling waterfront there’s plenty to keep you entertained in this picturesque seaside resort.

Scarborough has excellent road and rail links. Arriva buses operate in the area, providing routes to nearby towns, such as Guisborough and Whitby, as well as regular services to and from Middlesbrough.

No trip to this idyllic seaside town would be complete without feeling the sand between your toes. Take a stroll along the beach, make a splash on a jet ski or hit the promenade for arcades, cafés and ice cream.

For a little local history, be sure to visit Scarborough Castle. Perched on a rocky headland high above the town, this majestic medieval fortress affords some spectacular views across the bay. You can journey further into the depths of time at the Rotunda Museum, home to a wonderful collection of fossils unearthed on East Yorkshire’s famous Dinosaur Coast.

For a unique tour of the town, hop aboard Scarborough’s very own miniature railway. You’ll get to see some truly stunning local scenery, and at the end of the line, you’ll find Scarborough’s Sea Life Centre, home to an array of rare and exotic creatures.

In the evening, head down to the promenade for cocktails and dancing or check out the local open-air theatre, regularly playing host to some of the biggest names in showbiz.
