Scarborough has been a holiday resort for over 350 years and is considered the world's first seaside resort. If you are visiting North Yorkshire, a trip to the seaside is a must and Scarborough is the perfect place for it. Scarborough offers twice as much beach as most holiday resorts, with its two bays, each with its own very different character. The South Bay glitters with amusement arcades, ice cream parlours and shellfish stalls, while the quieter North Bay, just a 20-minute walk around the glorious Marine Drive or a 10-minute ride on one of the regular open-topped buses, offers a relaxing and nostalgic day out. Perched high above the bay is Scarborough Castle, a former medieval fortress that dominates the harbour, beaches and elegant Victorian Esplanade.
Scarborough is also a fantastic base for nature lovers, sandwiched between the rugged Yorkshire coast and the North Yorkshire Moors countryside. Walk along the beach, and you can spot wildfowl, waders and other sea birds; seals and porpoises, and if you're really lucky, the occasional whale or even basking shark
The Yorkshire coast stretches from Spurn Point to the south, up to Saltburn-by-the-Sea in the north. This unique stretch of heritage coastline boasts a number of gorgeous and very different seaside towns and villages, from the traditional resorts such as Whitby, Bridlington, Filey and Scarborough, to the picture perfect fishing communities at Runswick Bay, Staithes and Robin Hood's Bay. The Yorkshire coast covers some of the most beautiful countryside in the UK, from dramatic sea views to quiet country villages and moors. If you want a holiday full of variety, the Yorkshire coast has it all.
Head north or east from Scarborough, and within minutes you're in the North York Moors National Park, with game birds, curlew and deer. The Yorkshire Moors is one of the most stunning landscapes in the UK, it will simply make you stand and stare. Here you can experience the vast open Yorkshire moorland, listen to the upland birds, walk for miles or just sit and watch the world go by in this beautiful part of North Yorkshire.
Go south to the Wolds and there is a chance of spotting a magnificent red kite, and the world famous Bempton Cliffs, bustling with puffins and gannets. Just inland of Scarborough, you can find the Forge Valley Nature Reserve, with its ancient woodland.
Scarborough is also proud to have some of the best walking and cycling routes in the country, and the surf's so good, that the biggest event on the Pro Surf UK circuit has been held in Scarborough for the last few years.
