Why Move to Scarborough?
Britain’s oldest seaside resort, Scarborough and the surrounding area has been inhabited since medieval times.
During the 11th century Scarborough Castle was constructed, with spectacular panoramic views of the Yorkshire coastline.
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 of 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.
Getting around the region is simple, with many residents seeking work beyond Scarborough’s borders.
Four main roads serve the town linking it to other major towns and cities such as Hull 46 miles away, Knaresborough 57 miles away, York 42 miles away and Leeds by train is just 1 hour and ten minutes.
