Located along the picturesque Yorkshire Coast, Scarborough is a popular holiday destination thanks to its long history, beautiful beaches and range of fun community events. Scarborough is thought to be the world's first seaside town, dating back to the 1600s when the health-giving waters of the local spring were first discovered. The beachfront town is also known for the 11th century castle sitting atop a high rocky promontory that boasts panoramic views over the dramatic Yorkshire coastline. Today, you can take a tour through its collection of artefacts, some which are over 3,000 years old, enjoy an English afternoon tea in the Master Gunner's house or take part in one of the many pirate or Robin Hood-themed events. It's even rumoured to be haunted by three ghosts!
Scarborough has plenty of other things to see and do. Once primarily a seaside resort, it's now also home to many cultural attractions, including live theatres, creative arts centres and museums. The annual Scarborough Jazz Festival is held at the historic Scarborough Spa every September, while another festival, Seafest, sees folk singers, shantymen, musicians and artists flock to the harbour to put on a not-to-be-missed show!
The beaches in Scarborough are not only a great place to visit in summer, but also the starting point to explore along the Yorkshire coast. South Sands has an outer harbour for pleasure boats and yachts, where you can take a trip out around the bay. Head further north to find the North York Moors National Park, full of birds and deer, or go down south to the world famous Bempton Cliffs, where you'll find puffins and gannets.
