Scarborough is one the favorite family resorts in England, with so many attractions that include both the Fantasy Forest and the Luna Park Funfair, with as well cliff railways (funicular cars), which connect the beachfront with the town above. Facing the North Bay of Scarborough is the Japanese-themed Peasholm Park, and the very popular Sealife and Marine Sanctuary. During the summer, the water slides at the Atlantis Water Park open and are the perfect way to have fun on a hot day. And let’s not forget a ride aboard the coastal North Bay Miniature Railway, which is great for children and adults too.
The Rotunda is the 2nd oldest purpose-built museum in Britain. Built in 1828, the museum has been a focal point for geology and local history enthusiasts ever since. The museum is full of fascinating objects, from fossils found on East Yorkshire’s Dinosaur Coast to Gristhorpe Man, the skeleton and coffin of a Bronze Age man.
As Scarborough town center is rather small, you can walk around and have no trouble getting from place to place, as most of the attractions are located in a small area. If you are travelling by car you can easily get around to visit the sights and other landmarks and other cities which is the best option of travel but be careful with parking as it can get very busy.
If you don’t have a car and feel like walking isn’t for you, you can always hail a taxi that can take you where you need, or there is also the bus network in the town centre.
Scarborough train station is located in the centre of town and you can travel to many locations nearby, and you can also travel from London and reach Scarborough in a 5 hour journey.
