Bed and Breakfast Scarborough

by kathleenmaze

Please can anyone suggest a really nice B&B in Scarborough? I'm looking for somewhere near the open air theatre and ideally with either 4 or 5 stars.

Check out www.smoothhound.co.uk. It's a great source for nice B&Bs in the UK, and I've never been disappointed. They have good photos and links to the places' websites. If you want to go a bit further north to Whitby, White Linen there is a lovely B&B.

The Manor Heath in North Marine Drive always looks OK - I stopped outside it on Saturday by coincidence and it gets good reviews on the web.Good for the open air theatre too - just a few minutes walk.

We stayed at The Lysander B&B in Scarborough when we were there and that was really nice, it was close to the open air theatre as well. Website is www.lysanderhotel.co.uk

Travel Tips for Scarborough

Up To Date

by steventilly

These days I appreciate Scarborough a lot more for the fun days out you can have there just strolling along the two bays (on the prom or on the sand); walking up to the castle; or along the clifftop footpath; the picturesque harbour; the pubs & cafes; the views from Oliver's Mount.
All of these are covered in more detail in "Must See".

Fish and chips

by Sjalen about Golden Grid

Fish and chips are good in Scarborough and very often local, even if not as famous as in nearby Whitby. The Southside harbour front has at least four chippies but the most famous place to try this is probably a restaurant in between them all. The Golden Grid has an excellent position overlooking the harbour and you can get not only several varieties of fish and chips but also impressive seafood platters and some less fishy food. If you visit Scarborough during a busy period, it might be good to book in advance as the place is listed in all sorts of British food guides and Lonely Planet. I personally found the batter a bit greasy but the fish itself as well as the chips were delicious and the staff friendly. Can't complain about the prices either. An "all inclusive" which means fish and chips with bread (to make a yummy chip butty) and a pot of tea. How Yorkshire!

Scarborough Lighthouse

by Britannia2

Scarborough’s lighthouse stands on Vincent’s Pier, built in the 18th century and named after its engineer, William Vincent. Defining a date of initial construction for the lighthouse itself is difficult due to the lack of archive material, but research suggests that building commenced sometime between 1801 and 1806, after which a permanent brick structure existed, paid for by many of the vessels entering the harbour. No doubt there were alterations to the lighthouse during the late 19th century, but sadly very little archival evidence exists from this period that would allow an accurate description of any changes.
At around 8 a.m. on December 16, 1914 the town was bombarded by a German ship and the lighthouse (and town) damaged and the tower had to be demolished. It was rebuilt in 1931.
The lighthouse is no longer a 24 hour manned lighthouse but it remains a great landmark and makes for an interesting walk around it perimeter when visiting Vincents Pier.
