About

Peasholm Park, voted 6th Best Park in the UK and 25th Best Park in the whole of Europe in the Trip Advisor Traveller's Choice Awards, is situated in Scarborough’s North Bay and is a must-see for anyone visiting the Yorkshire Coast.

With a rich history and after having recently received a prestigious Green Flag Award, this oriental themed municipal park offers a beautiful system of streams and waterfalls, mini bridges and mystical gardens for the whole family to enjoy. The park is also home to the world famous Naval Warfare – a unique miniature sea battle that has been shown on television screens across the globe!

During the summer months, head down to Peasholm Boat Deck and choose from one of the many boats available to hire. Whether you fancy a row, a paddle or a pedal, there is a selection of brightly painted rowing boats, canoes and dragon themed pedaloes for you to choose from. The world-famous Peasholm Park Naval Warfare is a must see when visiting Scarborough. A unique family holiday attraction and possibly the longest running show of all time!

Calling all young dinosaur fans! Do you know that there are many different species of Dinosaur’s living in Scarborough’s Peasholm Park? If you want to track them down – download our Augmented Reality Dinosaur Safari for FREE. Search ‘Love Exploring’ in your app store, head to Peasholm Park and start exploring today!

Strategically positioned in the middle of the lake, in front of the largest waterfall, sits Peasholm Bandstand. The Bandstand hosts Sunday afternoon band concerts, normally during July and August. The Bandstand also creates a truly wonderful outdoor venue for the famous Scarborough Spa Orchestra and special guests who host a special firework spectacular concert in August each year.

Peasholm Park also comes complete with a putting green, a café serving both hot and cold food, a refreshments kiosk, toilets, an 18-hole mini golf course and the iconic Peasholm Park Island. Once you’ve crossed the bridge, take a walk to the top of the island and discover the hidden oriental gardens, just be careful not to disturb the geese!

The park also boasts a vast array of wildlife including an abundance of tame grey squirrels, ducks, swans and geese, whilst also being home to several Champion trees – that is, the tallest, widest and best examples of species in the country. With a wealth of arboreal interest at every turn, the trees found within Peasholm Park are not just of importance to Scarborough, or even to the UK; some of them are of interest to the world! In fact, at least one of the park’s trees was previously thought to be extinct; Dickson’s Golden Elm was thought to have died out during the 1970s when Dutch Elm Disease wiped out so many of England’s lovely elms, however, the Glen at Peasholm Park has not just one example of this incredibly rare tree, it actually has two!

The park offers some fantastic scenery and provides many with a real escape from the busier areas of town. Nevertheless, Peasholm Park is only a 5 minute walk from some of the town’s best attractions, including the long sweeping North Bay beach, Scarborough Sea Life Sanctuary, North Bay Miniature Railway and of course Europe’s largest open air theatre, the Scarborough OAT.
