Scarborough is the original seaside resort; stunning scenery, glorious beaches, loads to see and do – is it any wonder that people have been flocking to Scarborough for nearly 400 years now? You can still immerse yourself in Scarborough’s history with Scarborough Castle. But despite its rich history, Scarborough doesn’t live in the past. The town is constantly innovating to keep its place as one of the most popular holiday destinations in the UK to explore. There’s plenty to do in Scarborough. Take a boat trip off shore to meet lazy seal colonies, or chug through the North York Moors on a traditional steam train. The fair in the folk song made famous by Simon and Garfunkel may no longer exist but there’s still a traditional market hall packed with produce and regular craft fairs. Music lovers can visit the Spa complex, home of the only remaining seaside orchestra.
