Scarborough was Britain’s first seaside resort, originally famous for its medicinal spring water and healthy sea air.

With some of the country’s cleanest and most beautiful beaches, the town remains a very popular tourist resort.

Scarborough is near to much of North Yorkshire's most attractive countryside, including Dalby (the ‘Great Yorkshire Forest’), the Yorkshire Wolds (made famous in the work of painter David Hockney) and The North York Moors National Park, a beautiful landscape of stunning moorland, ancient woodland and historic sites. The town of Scarborough is an ideal base from which to explore one of Britain’s most diverse and exciting regions.

As a holiday town, there are many things to do. From making sandcastles on the beach, to swimming, surfing and sailing, when the sun shines there is lots to do. Even in bad weather, there is the theatre, bowling, cinemas and the indoor swimming pool to keep us busy.
