North West Reunions Breaks

Resort - Scarborough

Overview

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.
