Largest Holiday Resort in Yorkshire

Aug 31, 2007
On the south eastern edge of the North York Moors lies Scarborough. Scarboroughs greatest days as a commercial port and ship building centre came in the early years of the nineteenth century, but the larger iron and steam ships spelt the death of the Tindall's ship yard. The demand for fish, on the other hand, increased as Yorkshire's population grew.

The town is Britains first sea side resort, and visitors have been coming here for over 360 years and is still as popular as ever. The town is the largest holiday resort on the Yorkshire coast.

The town has a South Bay and a North Bay. The South Bay is the main focus and contains several arcades and entertainment facilities, and is overlooked by the town itself and is local for its shopping and night life. In South Bay is the harbour, where local fishermen still land their catches. The North Bay has traditionally been the more peaceful end of the resort

To travel around between the two bays and the harbour, take a trip along the sea front on an Open-Top Bus.

The Brunswick Shopping Centre is Scarborough's premier shopping facility, housing 37 shops and stores it was built in 1991.

Scarborough has a wide selection of bars pubs and cafe to visit both during the day and into the evening, as well as top quality nightclubs and venues to cater for every taste. The towns gay scene is growing and vibrant, and more and more venues are emerging offering gay nights, and a warm welcome to those of us with varied lifestyles and sexualities

Cayton Bay Beach is a small sandy bay backed by cliffs. A favourite beach for surfers. The town has the blue flag for the North Bay beach makes a perfect family holiday destination.

Kinderland is set in a landscaped woodland park, and is a unique and exciting world of good old-fashioned fun, adventure and excitement. It is situated in Scarborough's north bay. This 4.5-acre site is a dreamland of traditional play structures and activities for the young and young at heart.

Scarborough Castle defends a prominent headland between two bays, with sheer drops to the sea. Before the castle was built, this natural fortress was favoured by prehistoric settlers. A rare 3,000-year-old sword from the Bronze Age is now displayed in the Castles interactive exhibition For spectacular views over the Scarborough bay a climb up to the castle high on the hillis a must.
