Visiting Scarborough | From Broom House Country Guest House near Whitby

Britain's first holiday resort, Scarborough has been welcoming visitors for over 360 years. Today it is a delightful bustling seaside town catering for the whole family.

The safe, sandy beaches of the North and South Bays are broken by a rocky headland on which stands a reminder of the past - Scarborough's medieval castle. At its foot is the harbour where the boats still land their catch.

Safe beaches, clifftops and a busy shopping centre stand only yards apart and are all reached by the famous Victorian cliff lifts.

Once you've finished building sandcastles on the safe, sheltered beaches, stroll around the Marina and relaz in a variety of restaurants, cafes and bars. There's everything from traditional mouth watering fish and chips to chic waterfront bistros.
