It sits in a lovely natural harbour on the North Sea and enjoys the protection of rugged limestone cliffs. Scarborough has always excelled in providing the best in British seaside entertainment and continues to do so thanks to its colourful variety in traditional family oriented fun. It has two sprawling beaches, the wilder more relaxed North Bay, where you'll catch the surfers enjoying the waves and South Bay where you can engage in a bit of boules and cricket or watch from a picnic spot where kids are safe to explore. After the beach there are galleries, theatres, restaurants and cafe's to enjoy, as well as other seasonal shows and events for all ages.
