Route:

Scarborough Monument Peasholm 
Take a look at the monument remembering this Great War event. In December 1914, 18 Scarborough people were killed as German ships opened fire having entered English waters under the cover of darkness.
0.1 miles to John Shields Ryalls’ Grave

John Shields Ryalls’ Grave
Witness the grave of John Sheilds Ryalls, just 14 months old when he died in the German Bombardment.
The graves of every bombardment victim were found and restored to mark the centenary of the start of the conflict.
0.7 miles to Peasholm Pagodas

Peasholm Pagodas
Admire the Peasholm Pagodas in this oriental themed park. The park was closed in 1999 following a fire at the pagoda started by vandals.
1 mile to Scarborough Castle

St. Mary’s Church
Take a look at this 12th century church. It was once much larger, but during the siege of Scarborough Castle in the English Civil War, much was destroyed. Can you find the grave of literary icon, Anne Bronte? She died in 1849, aged 29.
0.2 miles to Butter Cross

Butter Cross
Look at this Grade II Listed building, nearly half a mile in length and home of entertainment in Scarborough for over 200 years.
Before then visitors flocked to the area to experience the curing effects of the spa water. Take in this often over-looked Grade I Listed
monument located in Princess Square. Scarborough Buttercross was indeed crossshaped and in Scarborough’s thriving market
days would have been a focal point for many a meeting, sermon or dodgy deal.
0.4 miles to The Grand Hotel Scarborough

The Grand Hotel Scarborough
Admire this Grade II Listed building in all its grandeur. Designed by Hull architect Cuthbert Brodrick, the Grand Hotel was one of the largest hotels in the world when completed in 1867.
<0.1 miles to Spa Bridge

Spa Bridge
Take in the view from Spa Bridge, the 75-foothigh construction giving St Nicholas Cliff access to the Spa. It was built swiftly by The Cliff Bridge Company in 1826 and officially opened, with much pomp, in July 1827.
0.3 miles to The Spa

The Spa
Look at this Grade II Listed building, nearly half a mile in length and home of entertainment in Scarborough for over 200 years. Before then visitors flocked to the area to experience the curing effects of the spa water.
