Scarborough

Scarborough combines a traditional seaside holiday with plenty of great day-out opportunities amongst beautiful coast, moors and forests.

If you’re looking for clean, safe sandy beaches, lots of seaside family-friendly fun and easy access to both coast and countryside, Scarborough is for you.

Scarborough has welcomed visitors for more than 360 years and is as popular as ever. The view from Scarborough Castle is well worth the climb, but if you prefer to explore without the exertion hop aboard the miniature North Bay Railway, it was built in 1931 and runs between Peasholm Park and Scalby Mills stations.

Divided by the Castle Headland, Scarborough''s North and South Bays have something for everyone. The busier South Bay has a sheltered sandy beach ideal for family bathing and sand castles, while the quieter North Bay has Blue-Flag status. Cayton Bay Beach lies just outside Scarborough and provides a relaxing environment in which to enjoy the coast.

The town has a number of fine parks and gardens including South Cliff Gardens and Peasholm Park; this extensive park has an impressive Japanese-style pagoda and a boating lake which, in the summer months, puts on miniature naval battles with small replica ships; great fun for the children.

If you want to explore the region the North York Moors National Park is a short distance inland as is Dalby Forest; both ideal for great days out.

A cottage break here allows you to enjoy a truly traditional seaside holiday in Britain’s ''first'' seaside resort. For accommodation see our selection of Scarborough holiday cottages.

Built around 1730 the house stands on the foundations of a medieval stone cottage that was originally on the site.

With its underfloor heating and multi-fuel burner, it’s a superb place to come back to after that long walk along the cliff tops.

Just a two minute walk and you can be sat on the beach. Scarborough is famous for its two bays, the North and South Bay. They are both very different in that the South Bay is the livelier of the two, with donkeys, amusements and traditional seaside facilities, whereas the North Bay is a quiet bay overlooked by Scarborough Castle.


    The resorts of Filey, Flamborough Head and Bridlington are just a short drive away, with their award winning beaches. The RSPB bird sanctuary at Bempton is well worth a visit. You’ll see thousands of puffins and guillemots in their natural habitat as well as the seals that lounge on the rocks.
