Scarborough

Scarborough is a friendly seaside resort in the picturesque North Yorkshire countryside. The town is one of the traditional British seaside destinations and it boast two bays, North Bay and South Bay. Holidaymakers flock to the clean, sandy south beach, and you can enjoy a scenic walk round the headland on Marine Drive between the two. The headland is dominated by the ruins of Scarborough Castle which dates from the 12th century. There is still plenty at the castle to interest history fans and views over the North Sea are sensational. The Spa Theatre at the end of south beach is a great place to catch an afternoon concert, while the Stephen Joseph Theatre in Westborough is the spiritual home of playwright Alan Ayckbourn and you might catch one of his plays. Take a stroll in beautiful Peasholm Park with its oriental themed gardens and catch one of the naval warfare battles fought by model craft on the lake. Scarborough has excellent shopping and a wide range of cafes, bars and restaurants - be sure to try Jaconelli's ice cream, it is delicious and is a Scarborough institution.
