Set on the beautiful North Yorkshire Coast with stunning scenery and glorious beaches, Scarborough is a destination that has attracted visitors from near and far for over 400 years.

Scarborough is overlooked by a hilltop medieval castle dated from the 1150’s, and became well known as a spa town and Britain’s first seaside resort in the 17th Century. During the 1800’s it was home to the author Anne Bronte and saw the construction of The Crown and the Grand Hotel.

Despite its rich history, Scarborough doesn’t live in the past and is the ideal place to live, work and study today. The town is constantly innovating and was judged to be the ‘most creative and inspiring entrepreneurship initiative in Europe’ at the European Enterprise Awards (2009). The town has a long history of engineering and manufacturing. These sectors currently account for more than 15 per cent of the town’s economic activity. Scarborough Borough Council is working with others to develop these sectors. But as a traditional town, it has traditional values that are serving it well. In a manner that’s missing in many resorts, local entrepreneurs and councillors work together for the greater good. Talent is beginning to stay in Scarborough and perhaps most important, is returning. The area has an enviable reputation for its reasonable living costs and high-quality affordable accommodation.

As the largest town on the Yorkshire coast, Scarborough acts as a cultural hub for the area. There’s a lively local music scene and the Open Air Theatre attracts worldwide musicians. The biggest names in comedy can be seen at the Spa Complex, and the 3-day arts and music event ‘Coastival’ is a highlight in Scarborough each February.

Outstanding drama is housed at the renowned Stephen Joseph Theatre – noted for hosting world premieres of Alan Ayckbourn’s award-winning plays. The playwright and director lives in the town, as do well-heeled former BBC types. Local poetry, jazz, literature and music festivals are proliferating.

Food and drink wise, the town is packed with independent restaurants, brewpubs, bars and delis.

Scarborough has a strong sporting heritage, showcased with a world-famous annual cricket festival that has been taking place since 1876 in one of England’s most beautiful county cricket grounds. As in many seaside resorts, outdoor sports and entertainment are flourishing in Scarborough. The Tour de Yorkshire, the successor to the county’s phenomenally successful staging of the 2013 Tour de France opening leg, brought the world’s top cyclists to the town. In Spring 2015 Scarborough hosted the P1 Powerboat festival, watched by thousands from the slopes above the sea, the town’s natural amphitheatre. Surfing is very popular.

2016 has seen the opening of Alpamare’s new £15 million waterpark as part of the continuing redevelopment of North Bay.

The new Scarborough Leisure Village will be home to an eight-lane Olympic Legacy swimming pool, a four-court sports hall, 60-station fitness suite and more. It will also be home to a new ground for Scarborough Athletic Football club, which will open in 2017.

Stretching from Spurn Point to the south up to Saltburn-by-the-Sea in the north, this unique stretch of coastline boasts a string of gorgeous and very different seaside towns and villages, from traditional resorts such as Bridlington, Filey, Scarborough and Whitby, to picture-perfect fishing communities, many of them within the North York Moors National Park, that start high on the clifftops and tumble intriguingly down to the sea, like Robin Hood’s Bay, Runswick Bay and Staithes.

With its towering cliffs, rocky shores and sandy beaches, North Yorkshire offers some of the UK's more spectacular and inspiring coastline. The remarkable concentration of dinosaur footprints and fossils found locally has caused the area to become known at the Dinosaur Coast.

To the north of Scarborough is historic Whitby, home to some exceptional fish restaurants and famed for its Benedictine abbey, as a setting for Bram Stoker's Dracula and as the home of Captain Cook, and his ship Endeavour. To the south there's Filey, a friendly seaside town with some elegant Edwardian and Victorian architecture, tranquil gardens and five miles of sandy beach.

The Yorkshire Coast is the best place to see sea birds in England. RSPB Bempton Cliffs is home to one of the UK’s top wildlife spectacles and the most accessible seabird colony in the UK. Over a quarter-of-a-million seabirds swooping, soaring and screeching around towering chalk cliffs.

Marked by a stretch of rugged white cliffs surrounding a small village, Flamborough Head is an outdoor lover's paradise. The coastline is a great base for bird watching, hiking along windswept paths and sea canoeing around the bay. With a scenic nature reserve and two ancient lighthouses nearby, this special area of conservation is a haven for anyone looking to explore the Yorkshire Coast at its most wild and untamed.

The region offers endless outdoor activities in the region, such as:

  • Surfing
  • Sailing
  • Stand Up Paddle Boarding
  • Canoeing
  • Paragliding
  • Walking
  • Climbing
  • Diving
  • Mountain Biking
  • Off-Roading
  • Golf

Along the coast, narrow ravines shelter winsome fishing villages; inland lies the breath-taking heather-clad expanse of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park; while the hills of the Yorkshire Wolds ripple gently southward.

Some of Yorkshire’s best-loved villages fall within the boundaries of that most special of locations – the dramatic North York Moors National Park.

Stretching from above Scarborough in the south, to just beyond Staithes in the north, and inland to Helmsley, Osmotherley and Kilburn, the park’s many treasures include, on the Heritage Coast, Ravenscar, Robin Hood’s Bay, Sandsend and Runswick Bay; and inland, gorgeous moorland villages such as Rosedale Abbey, Lealholm, Hutton le Hole and Danby, all scattered with spectacular and world-known heritage sites, including the Abbeys at Rievaulx and Byland, and Helmsley Castle.

The Park is home to one of the world’s most popular heritage railways, running between Pickering and Whitby. Sandwiched between beautiful moorland and the North Sea is a very special 26-mile strip of heritage coastline, brimming with mini adventures and maritime curiosities. The picturesque fishing villages between Saltburn and Cloughton are all part of the North York Moors National Park and have a quirky, independent charm of their own. With winding streets and tiny cottages, each one has its own tale to tell, from smuggling and artisan communities to pioneering high seas adventurers.

It's also dinosaur country. The unspoilt coastline has footprints and fossils from the Jurassic Age in the cliffs and rocks at the water's edge. Towering sea cliffs tumble down to beautiful sandy beaches and sheltered coves.

Dalby Forest is situated on the southern slopes of the North York Moors National Park. The southern part of the forest is divided by a number of valleys creating a 'Rigg and Dale' landscape whilst to the north the forest sits on the upland plateau.

The National Park and Dalby Forest offer a range of hiking and mountain bike trails, as well as Go Ape.

Sitting at the Eastern End of the famous Cleveland Way Filey is a wholly unique, quiet and quite beautiful, small seaside town. The beautiful sandy beach, roughly a 5-mile stretch, is flanked by sublime cliffs known for its cleanliness. Filey Bay stretches from the historical Filey Brigg peninsula at the northern point of the bay, to the majestic white cliffs of Flamborough Head to the south; and in between over six miles of golden sand.

Rich in ancient history, York is renowned for its exquisite architecture, tangle of quaint cobbled streets, iconic York Minster and wealth of visitor attractions. York is a flourishing city and has recently been voted Britain’s most beautiful city.

Hull is the UK City of Culture 2017. All of the city’s museums and galleries are free to enter. Following The famous fish trail follows its attractions like the historic old town heart the museums quarter and cultural venues. Another highlight is a visit to the award winning The Deep.

The stunning market town of Beverley has an awe-inspiring Minster, popular racecourse, historical buildings, vibrant festivals and small town charm. The Georgian Quarter has architecturally fascinating streets, divided by the 15th Century North Bar and contains a great number of listed buildings, and a wide variety of shops.

Malton is a pretty Yorkshire market town, located on the north of the River Derwent on the historic boundary between the North and East Ridings of Yorkshire. The town is one of Yorkshire’s most renowned foodie destinations with its famous food festivals, food producers and shops, restaurants, cafes, food market and cookery school. Malton still has traditional butchers, bakers and grocers, quite unusual for a small town these days.

Helmsley is the only market town in the North York Moors National Park, and you can enjoy fascinating attractions including the National Centre for Birds of Prey, Helmsley Castle, Helmsley Arts Centre and the Walled Gardens, to award-winning eateries and the town’s very own Brewery. The town is even home to the winner of Britain’s Best Small Shop 2015.
