Scarborough Castle

Scarborough Castle is a former medieval Royal fortress situated on a rocky promontory overlooking the North Sea and the town of Scarborough.

The site has a very long history - the Romans had a signal station here. The original castle was built in the 12th century by the Normans. Over the years, several other structures were added, and the castle was an important fortress that guarded the Yorkshire coast from invasion.

The castle has been a ruin since the sieges of the English Civil War, but attracts many visitors to climb the battlements, explore the history of the site, and take in the magnificent views.
