      Map & Directions

      Road Directions

      Finding The Ambassador is easy. Coming into Scarborough from any direction follow the signs for the A165 and take any of the roads that lead onto The Esplanade. We're right in the middle overlooking the fantastic Scarborough South Bay.

      Public Transport Directions

      We're a 10-15 minute walk from the Railway Station - but we recommend you take a taxi, it won't cost you much and who'd want to be lugging those suitcases around when you're on holiday!
