Known as one of the world’s first seaside resorts, popular for sea bathing since the 17th century with imposing Victorian hotels and colourful beach huts. The sandy North Bay is ideal for families with rock pools to explore and the nearby Sealife Centre. The South Bay is slightly busier, with the harbour and amusement arcades close by, Punch & Judy shows and donkey rides in the summer.

The town boasts a fantastic selection of evening entertainment such as the Stephen Joseph Theatre and the Scarborough Open Air Theatre with many big names from the music industry headlining concerts. No trip the area is complete without visiting Scarborough Castle with its impressive coastline views and ruins of the signal station to explore.

From Scarborough there is access to The Wolds, North York Moors and Dalby Forest which includes a Go Ape venue. The North Bay Railway is a great family day out; with a fun water chute, boating lake and ropes course. Other nearby attractions include the Sea Life Sanctuary, Rotunda Museum and the Olympia Leisure Complex. Plus for something different try the Terror Tower. The oriental themed Peasholm Park has a boating lake and gardens perfect for as picnic while enjoying the bandstand concerts in the summer.


By far the largest county in the UK, Yorkshire is extremely popular for its countryside retreats as well as the bright lights of some busy cities like Harrogate, Sheffield and Leeds. Scarborough is the oldest seaside resort in Britain.

Whitby has been voted the country's best beach and has a beautiful harbour and a Dracula museum to boot (the town is featured in the Bram Stoker vampire story of the same name, as well as some of its many movie adaptations).

Yorkshire has always had a great and not always friendly rivalry with the neighbouring county of Lancashire. Some of the bloodiest battles in English history took place in these shires, as the opposing Plantagenet houses of York and Lancaster fought a bitter civil conflict commonly known as the Wars of the Roses. Nowadays the competition takes place mostly on the cricket pitch.

The two counties are among the most famous teams in this oh so important English summer game. Yorkshire has the nickname “God's own county”, a reference to the beauty of its countryside, with several National Parks formed to protect its moors and dales and rugged coastline. Cliffs of limestone, chalk and jet guard its coast against the sea. Because of its considerable size, Yorkshire is often regarded as three distinct administrative areas called “ridings” (North, West and East Riding), a Scandinavian concept thought to derive from the Viking occupation in the first century AD.
