Scarborough Visitor information

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.

Travel

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. 

History of Scarborough

Scarborough is a resort town on England’s North Sea coast. Its 2 bays with sandy beaches are split by a headland. Scarborough firstly became famous in the 17th century, for its spa water. The seaside resort and spa town soon became the great holiday resort on the Yorkshire coast.

Prior to other sites, the Scarborough Castle which is over 2,500 years old is from the far the oldest monument across Yorkshire. The spectacular fortress located between the two bays, stands on a massive promontory of rock that rises above the North Sea. It is a great way to discover not only the history of the town but also about the turbulent history of the place. 

St Athanasius’ Coptic Orthodox Monastery is located in the town centre, the community opened a few years ago and welcomes all individuals for visits. The monastery provides a wonderful opportunity for those wanting to gain an insight into monastic life and for anyone who simply wants to spend a little spiritual time.

Another great religious site to visit is St Mary’s Church, the parish church was first built in the 12th century by the masons that were employed by the castle. The Tomb of the poet Anne Brontë lies in the large graveyard; she died in Scarborough in 1849 after succumbing to tuberculosis at the age of 29. She travelled to Scarborough because she loved the resort and hoped that the air may improve her condition. Her gravestone brings many curious visitors each year.
