Summer on the Yorkshire Coast - 2018

No matter the season, there will be an array of events being held throughout the Yorkshire Coast. Whether it's the annual Skipping Day on Scarborough Seafront or Romantic Breaks for Valentine's Day.
It's hard to be bored over the summer holidays when there's so much to do on the Yorkshire Coast.

Scarborough is the original seaside resort; stunning scenery, glorious beaches, loads to see and do – is it any wonder that people have been flocking to Scarborough for nearly 400 years now?

Scarborough is a town on the North Sea coast of North Yorkshire, England. Historically part of the North Riding of Yorkshire, the town lies between 10–230 feet above sea level, rising steeply northward and westward from the harbour on to limestone cliffs. The older part of the town lies around the harbour and is protected by a rocky headland.
