Close Attractions

Aldborough Roman Site

This was the principal town of the Brigantes, whose earlier tribal stronghold can be seen at Stanwick. The remains include parts of the Roman defences and two spectacular mosaic pavements. The on-site museum displays local Roman finds.

Scarborough Castle

With its stunning location and panoramic views over the dramatic Yorkshire coastline, the castle will be the pinnacle of your visit to Scarborough. Come and see objects from its 3,000 years of history, play on the grassy headland, and take tea in the Master Gunner's house.

North Bay Railway

We are one of the most historic seaside miniature railway in the United Kingdom, offering a wide range of attractions including the Glass House Café, Sky Trail, Boating Lake and Historic Water Chute. Now celebrating our 84th year, we have been operating trains since 1931, taking passengers for around ¾ mile from Peasholm Park to Scalby Mills stations, offering beautiful views of Scarborough’s North Bay.

Peasholm Park

Peasholm Park has a tranquil lake and in the summer months people can hire boats of all sorts to enjoy the water at close quarters. Boats include traditional rowing boats and canoes but pedaloes with dragon heads are available too and these prove to be very popular with summer visitors and locals alike. If you don't fancy pedaling then go for a sail in the Swan launch where you can relax on the water and let someone else steer the boat. There is a bandstand in the middle of the lake and music concerts which are free of charge can often be heard during the summer season.

North Cliff Golf Club - Scarborough

North Cliff Golf Club is situated 2 miles north of Scarborough, North Yorkshire, on the coastal road to Whitby. Although mainly a parkland course, it does have a cliff top start and finish. Stunning views of both the North Bay and Castle make this James Braid designed course both a delight and a challenge to play at any time of the year. At 6425 yards with a SSS 71 North Cliff is testing for the low handicap player, yet is enjoyable for the mid to high handicap golfer. The club has a resident professional with a well-stocked shop and full catering and bar facilities to make your day complete.

Scarborough Fair Collection

The Scarborough Fair Collection hosts a magnificent working collection of Vintage Cars, Steam Engines, Vintage Fairground Rides and Mechanical Organs topped off with a 'Mighty' Wurlitzer Organ in our spacious ballroom. Set in the scenic grounds of the Flower of May Holiday Park on the coast road between Scarborough and Filey.
