Scarborough, Britain’s first seaside resort, has been welcoming visitors for over 360 years and is still as popular as ever.
Scarborough, just 15 miles from Whitby with a regular public bus service, is a great a place visit during your stay, with the safe, sandy, accredited beaches and broken by a rocky headland on which stands a reminder of the past, the historic Scarborough Castle.
The resort offers first class attractions such as the award winning Sea Life Marine Sanctuary, Scarborough Open Air Theatre, Scarborough Art Gallery and the refurbished Rotunda Museum, along with many festivals, including Seafest, Jazz, Bike Week, Scarborough Fayre and the Scarborough Cricket Festival providing you with year round events.
By night you will be spoilt for choice with four fantastic theatres, each offering something different. The most famous is the Stephen Joseph Theatre of playwright Sir Alan Ayckbourn. Music lovers can visit Scarborough’s Spa Complex of the only remaining seaside orchestra, or Peasholm Park, which offers open air concerts and a variety of family activities.
