Scarborough Castle and Harbour

Standing guard over the North Sea is the dramatic ruin of Scarborough Castle. This mighty fortress boasts a rich history stretching back nearly 3,000 years, witnessing everything from Roman signal fires to a pivotal Civil War siege.

Scarborough Harbour is a historic harbor located on the northeast coast of England, nestled beside Scarborough Castle and bordering the popular South Bay beach. The harbour comprises two piers: the West Pier and the Vincent Pier.

 

Scarborough North Beach Chalets

North Bay

The North Bay has been awarded with Blue Flag status meaning it’s one of the best in Europe! Popular for rock pooling at low tide, or stand up paddle boarding and surfing at high tide. For a more relaxed experience you can hire one of the colourful beach huts.

The beach huts provide running water, a kettle, and deck chairs, ideal for sunbathing, relaxing and enjoying the views.
