Scarborough is one of the UK's top holiday spots and it is easy to see why. Located on the North Yorkshire coast it has a bit of everything; award winning beaches, dramatic cliffs, a historic harbour and bustling town with lots of family fun attractions. What more do you need, I hear you shout? Well, how about a stunning clifftop castle and as much candy floss as you can shake a stick at. Yes, this place really does have it all. Get your Nan, the kids and the dog in the car and head off to experience British holidaying at its best.
If you get bored of lolling on the gorgeous blue flag beaches, you've surfed for hours at Cayton Bay and you've done enough rock pooling and crabbing to feed the whole family, head out to explore the many attractions on offer. There is a great Sea Life centre, a quite incredible water park (no, I mean it, Alpamare Water park is NOT like other water parks), a heritage railway - they have a Santa Special this year so book in advance - and loads of seafront arcades. Visit 3000 year old Scarborough Castle with its fabulous panoramic views over the sea and if you come at the end of October book in on one of their ghost tours.......spooky.
Scarborough is simply a brilliant seaside holiday destination and you will find accommodation and restaurants to suit all budgets. When planning your holidays this place should be at the top of the list!
