Santa Arrives in Scarborough


Sat 17 Nov 2018
Santa will arrive by fishing boat at 11am and will make his way from West Pier up through the town centre to take up residence in his grotto at Boyes.

The grotto will open to the public when he arrives, which is expected to be between noon and 12.30pm.

It's a tradition that's been going on for decades.

Manager at Boyes', tells us what will happen:

"We have Santa arriving from the North Pole. He's coming by boat with a couple of his fairies. He's arriving down near the harbour at 11.30am. We've got Yorkshire Coast College Band and Yorkshire Coast Radio is joining us as well."

“Santa will be in his grotto from noon and we’re expecting a very busy day.”
