Spring fun for kids!
Scarborough was built for leisure, so it’s bursting with fun things to do with your family!
Here are some of our top picks of activities and events in the Spring…
Book a show at the Stephen Joseph Theatre
The SJT showcases a variety of programming for all ages. This month, Kitchen Zoo will bring
their nursery rhyme themed musical cabaret ‘Hey Diddle Diddle’.
The show features live music, puppetry, laughter, and lots of chances to join in. It lasts 45
minutes and every performance is relaxed, making it an ideal introduction to theatre.

Visit Shuttleworth Gardens
These beautiful gardens are the perfect place to peacefully read a book in the sunshine, but a
highlight for children is the fairy garden. There is even a post where you can leave letters for the
fairies! The gardens are situated opposite the clock tower, just a hop, skip and jump away from
our Esplanade apartment.
Take a trip on the North Bay heritage railway
This adorable miniature railway is a great activity all on its own, but being a mode of transport –
it can take you on a journey to an afternoon of further fun. Grab a drink and snack from the
Peasholm Park cafe and hop on the train to the Sea Life centre for an activity filled afternoon!
