Family & Seaside Attractions

A trip to the seaside is an essential part of childhood, and Scarborough is the perfect place for it, whatever your budget. A day on the beach – building sandcastles, paddling, feeling the sand between your toes, ice cream and candy floss, donkey rides – it’s good old-fashioned fun for all the family.

And Scarborough offers twice as much beach as most holiday resorts, with its two bays, each with its own very different character – the South Bay glitters with amusement arcades, ice cream parlours and shellfish stalls, while the quieter North Bay, just a 20-minute walk around the glorious Marine and Albert Drives, or ten-minute ride on one of the regular open-topped buses, away offers a more relaxing and nostalgic day out.
