Area Overview

Situated on the North Yorkshire coast, the seaside town of Scarborough is characterised by the 12th century ruins of Scarborough castle which sit atop a rocky headland that divides the coast into two beaches: North Bay and South Bay. Scarborough is the quintessential British seaside resort, offering a wealth of entertainment in the form of donkey rides, rock pooling, arcades and a miniature railway. Whilst the Blue Flag status of North Bay beach makes it an ideal destination for families, South Bay’s proximity to the amenities of the town centre ensures it remains the main tourist area. Scarborough enjoys warm summers of around 21°C, with temperatures dropping to around 6°C during the windier winter months.

Things To Do in Scarborough

  • Scarborough Castle
  • South Bay Beach: Flat sandy beach with good natural protection from the wind and rock pools at low tide. The beach also benefits from lifeguards during the busier summer months.
  • North Bay Beach: Flat sandy Blue Flag beach, patrolled by seasonal lifeguards, with rock pools at low tide.
  • North Bay Railway: Miniature railway operating from Peasholm Park to Scalby Mills.
  • Rotunda Museum: Built in 1829, the Rotunda Museum is one of the first purpose built museums in the world. This iconic circular structure houses a vast collection of fossils and minerals from the Jurassic Yorkshire coast.
  • The Scarborough Fair Collection: This speciality museum boasts an impressive collection of vintage cars, steam engines and mechanical organs including a Mighty Wurlitzer Organ. Visitors can also enjoy the restored collection of working vintage fairground rides.
  • Peasholm Park: This historic park, dating back to 1912, offers tranquil gardens, nature trails and a boating lake complete with bandstand. An oriental theme runs through the park, in the form of a pagoda, Japanese-style bridges and exotic plants.
  • St Martin-on-the-Hill Church: Includes paintings by William Morris and Dante Gabriel Rossetti.
  • St Mary's Church: Where the British novelist Anne Brontë is buried.

When to go to Scarborough

Due to its popularity as a seaside resort, Scarborough’s peak season operates during the warmer summer months of July and August. Low season is from November to March thanks to the cooler temperatures. May, June and July enjoy the most hours of sunshine, closely followed by April and August.

The annual festival Seafest typically takes place in July. The festival celebrates Scarborough’s maritime history with live music, cooking demonstrations, craft stalls, heritage displays and children’s activities.
