Coach holidays with Alfa Travel

Scarborough, Whitby & York

Resort - Scarborough


Scarborough is arguably the oldest seaside resort in Britain - a Dr Wittie of Scarborough was advocating sea bathing as long ago as 1660, more than a century before it became popular in Regency Brighton! But Scarborough is much older even than this - a cursory glance at the headland which divides Scarborough's two bays reveals the impressive medieval castle. The name Scarborough is a Viking one and the castle grounds conceal the remains of a Roman signal station. The busy harbour is haven to a welter of fishing vessels and there are the usual seaside pursuits a-plenty on the adjacent South Bay promenade which leads to the Spa. The steep hill sides are beautifully landscaped and there are many attractive parks and gardens. The resort is noted for its theatres and there is an art gallery and several small museums.

  • Today we visit York, a vibrant festival city with Roman roots and a Viking past, offering an adventure for everyone. York boasts a wealth of places to visit including the Roman walls, the famous York Minster, the National Railway Museum and the fascinating Jorvik Viking Centre (entrance fees may apply). You can take a stroll down the Shambles, one of the best preserved medieval streets in Europe, believed to be the inspiration for Diagon Alley in the Harry Potter films.

  • Admire the spectacular scenery of the North York Moors National Park as we make our way to the harbour town of Whitby. Overlooked by the dramatic ruined abbey, Whitby is a firm favourite and there is much to discover in the historic cobbled streets - including some of the best fish and chips in the world!
