Scarborough Travel Guide

Activities & Events

The Castle headland divides the coast into two bays, each different in character. South Bay is developed, and you'll find amusement arcades, a funfair, the harbour, the Spa complex, donkey rides, and all the colour of a traditional English seaside resort. North Bay, by contrast, is relatively undeveloped and is quieter.

The Stephen Joseph Theatre is one of the few theatres outside London where new plays are reviewed in the national newspapers, and is where all of local resident Sir Alan Ayckbourn's plays are premiered.
Walk around... The cobbled street next to the Futurist Theatre on the Foreshore has beautiful art work on the walls. Other walks you should do include the Italian Gardens on the South Bay, just off the Esplanade. Walk up and around Oliver's Mount, which offers spectacular views around the town. A walk to the castle offers rewarding views of both North and South Bay, as well as being able to view the grave of Anne Brontë in St. Mary's churchyard (the only Bronte not to be buried in Haworth).
Jump on one of the Open Top buses which travel from the Spa to Peasholm Park to enjoy the entire seafront and Castle headland.
Scarborough's popular miniature railway travels from Peasholm to Scalby Mills around the newly revamped (2010) Open Air Theatre. With tunnels, bridges and stations, it's just like a normal train service, just smaller.
