Scarborough - Leisure Activities

Man holding serf-board

However you like to spend your down time, you can do it in style in Scarborough.

We’re proud to have some of the best walking and cycling routes in the country, and the surf’s so good that the biggest event on the Pro Surf UK circuit has been held here for the last few years.

For those who prefer a spot of retail therapy and luxury, there are fabulous shops, restaurants and spas, while culture vultures will enjoy the vibrant arts scene in the town, including the spectacular Rotunda, one of the world’s first-ever purpose-built museums, the internationally renowned Stephen Joseph Theatre, the Spa Conference and Entertainment Venue and Europe’s biggest open air theatre, all of which host top-name acts.

Or you could just pull up a deckchair and do some people-watching on the beach – it’s a centuries-old tradition!
