The castle divides the seafront into two bays, north and south. Its ruins still stand and are a popular tourist attraction.
The Old Town lies around the harbour and it has a wealth maritime history. Scarborough became most famous in the 1600s for its healing spa waters, hundreds of years later people still flock here.
Residents and visitors can enjoy the clean safe beaches, traditional donkey rides, ice-cream sundaes, fish and chips, penny slots and a miniature railway. All of this still ensures the town is a popular holiday destination.
Despite its rich history, Scarborough doesn’t live in the past. It is constantly innovating to keep its place as one of the most popular holiday destinations in the UK.
A new state of the art water park has been built along with upgrades of some older buildings as well as improvements to local amenities.
Shopping can be done at the traffic-free Bar Street right in the town centre, where there is a good assortment of independent shops.
For high street names such as Debenhams, the Brunswick Shopping Centre is also ideally situated in the town centre.

Things to do in Scarborough
When living in Scarborough you will never be stuck for things to do. In the 1800’s Scarborough began to cater for the influx of visitors, as a result the council created some superb parks and gardens.
Following this, the Esplanade and the Spa complex were built. The cliff lift was added a little later, offering an easy and quirky method of accessing beach.
This is especially helpful for young families with buggies or those unable to get down the steep stairs.
Scarborough has two main beaches with South Beach being the busiest. It boasts soft sand and clean water which is manned by lifeguards in the summer months.
It’s accessibility via Foreshore Road and its proximity to the town centre with access to shops, theatres, amusement arcades, eateries and harbour make the beach a favourite with visitors and locals alike.
There are some impressive views along the clifftop pathways of the North and South Bay, these attract serious hikers as well as families out for a leisurely stroll. No matter what the season, there is always something different to see.
Historical sites include the impressive Scarborough Castle. A former medieval Royal fortress which was built almost 3000 years ago in order to defend the UK coast. Although now a ruin, it has a very interesting and turbulent past to uncover and some stunning views over the region.
The Rotunda Museum, described as the finest surviving purpose-built museum of its age in the country, was built in 1829 by William Smith, the “Father of English Geology.
It will appeal to all ages and is full of fascinating objects, from fossils found on East Yorkshire’s Dinosaur Coast to the Gristhorpe Man as well as the skeleton and coffin of a Bronze Age man which is the best example of a tree burial in Britain.
For other ideas on what to do in your spare time visit:
There are many sought after locations in the town, but the Esplanade with its historic buildings and superb sea views is always popular.
As are the “tree-lined avenues” of Stepney which also have the added benefit of being a quick stroll to the town and beach.
The South Cliff Promenade above the Spa and South Cliff Gardens both have excellent views of the South Bay and old town and are home to some traditional Victorian and Regency properties.
Property prices range from £30,000 for a one-bedroom apartment in need of renovation but situated conveniently close to the sea and shops, up to £725,000 for a four-bedroom bungalow which sits on a substantial plot measuring 4.5 acres.
During the last year, property values have seen an above average increase in value of almost 3.00% and the current average price paid is a very affordable £172,558.
