Scarborough is Britains First Seaside Resort

Aug 17, 2007
The borough of Scarborough can be reached by road nationally from the A1 or M1 which both run close to Leeds in West Yorkshire. The A64 from Leeds then runs directly to Scarborough. There are good road links from the A64 to all parts of the Borough including the A171 Scarborough to Whitby road and the A165 Scarborough to Filey road.

Britains first seaside resort, has been welcoming visitors for over three hundred and sixty years and is still as popular as ever. The safe, sandy, accredited beaches of the North and South Bays are broken by a rocky headland on which stands a reminder of the past Scarboroughs medieval castle.

The resort offers first class attractions such as the award winning Sea Life Marine Sanctuary, Atlantis Water park. It is home to two of the largest water slides in Europe, Kinderland childrens fun park, the Rotunda Museum and Scarborough Art Gallery.

The many festivals, including Seafest, Jazz, Bike week, Scarborough Faye and the Cricket festival, provide you with all year round events.

By night you will be spoilt for choice with four fantastic theatres, each offering something different. One of the most famous is the Stephen Joseph Theatre, home of playwright Sir Alan Ayckbourn. Music lovers can visit the Spa complex, home of the only remaining seaside orchestra, or Peasholm Park, which offers open air concerts and a variety of family entertainments.

Scarborough boasts many quality restaurants, each serving a variety of fresh local produce. The restaurants cater for all tastes with everything from seafood and a la carte establishments to Italian, Greek, Indian, Chinese and Thai cuisine. The resort provides a great choice of high street shops and boutiques.

The Brunswick Centre is a prestigious all weather shopping centre with a department store and thirty five other retail outlets. The Centre is located in Scarboroughs shopping precinct, which with the surrounding streets has many individual boutiques, specialist shops and inviting cafes and bars. Whatever you decide to do or wherever you decide to go you will always receive that warm.

Flamingo Land Theme Park is a Family run venture based on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors. It is easily accessible from Scarbourgh. The three acre site contains a large theme park, a well maintained zoo and a number of caravans, tent pitches, and luxury cabins for those wishing to stay longer than a day. Alternatively, if you wish you may bring your own caravan.
