Welcoming visitors for over 360 years, Scarborough is the perfect holiday destination. With award-winning beaches, dramatic cliffs, an historic harbour and fun family attractions, Britain’s first seaside resort really does have it all.
Steeped in history, Scarborough was founded around 966 AD as Skarðaborg by Thorgils Skarthi, a Viking raider.
It has plenty of things to do, including a SEA LIFE centre, Alpamare Waterpark, Scarborough Castle, bike hire and you can’t forget to take an open top bus tour.
When the sun is shining, the two bays await for you. The North Bay is a must visit beach named as one of the best in Europe for both cleanliness and safety.
The South Bay, is a busier beach with fine soft sands, lots of rock pools to explore and of course no beach trip is complete without a donkey ride.
