Welcoming visitors for over 360 years, Britain's first seaside resort really does have it all; award-winning beaches, dramatic cliffs and castle headland, fantastic family attractions, historic harbour and of course a warm Yorkshire welcome. Scarborough itself was founded around 966 AD as Skarðaborg by Thorgils Skarthi, a Viking raider.
Scarborough is divided into two bays, South Bay is the busiest beach with its fine, soft sand and arching bay creating a perfect sun trap, why not take your family exploring in the fabulous rock pools and don't forget the Donkey rides! North Bay is Scarborough's Blue Flag Beach, one of the best in Europe for both cleanliness and safety. Slightly quieter of the two offering fantastic sea views.
