Scarborough is one of England's oldest and finest seaside resorts. With a history spanning over a thousand years and surrounded by stunning scenery, Scarborough is the undisputed 'Queen of the Yorkshire coast' with a host of attractions to suit everyone.

The town stands between two splendid bays and is overlooked by a magnificent rugged headland, which is crowned by a medieval castle. Stroll along the town's majestic Victorian promenade and wander around its shopping centres, antiques stalls, restaurants and cafés. Discover its formal gardens, regarded to be amongst the best in the country. Visit its wealth of attractions from the Stephen Joseph Theatre and nearby Eden Camp to the Rotunda Museum and delightful South Bay Marina.

The town has uniquely beautiful and intriguing surroundings. Explore the rugged Yorkshire coastline or search the vast north Yorkshire Moors. Travel north to the whaling port of Whitby, with its imposing ruined monastery and well known as a setting for Bram Stoker's 'Dracula', or head south to the lively fishing port of Bridlington, with its beautiful Augustinian priory and fabulous beaches.


Scarborough offers two sheltered bays of golden sand which are ideal for bathing. Scarborough is also a premier floral resort with a number of stunning gardens, in particular those at South Cliff and the oriental-themed Peasholm Park.


In a prominent headland position overlooking the town, Scarborough Castle has witnessed over 2,500 years of history and there is an exhibition which features intriguing artefacts from Scarborough's past.
