Scarborough

 

The original seaside resort - stunning scenery, glorious beaches, loads to see and do – is it any wonder that people have been flocking to Scarborough for nearly 400 years now?

You can still immerse yourself in history with Scarborough Castle and the Rotunda Museum of geology. You could venture down to the seafront to see the traditional amusement arcades, ice cream parlours, shellfish stalls and beach huts. But despite its rich history, Scarborough doesn’t live in the past. The town is constantly innovating to keep its place as one of the most popular holiday destinations in the UK.

Outdoor adventures can be found all around: try boating in Peasholm Park; take a ride on the miniature railway; be daring on the Sky Trail Adventure bridge and beam course; splash about at Alpamare Waterpark; learn surfing at one of the surf shops or make friends with penguins at Scarborough Sea Life Sanctuary.
