park & sleep

by clairemorrison

Hi
Is there anywhere where we can park our car and sleep in it overnight? Thanks

Re: park & sleep

I don't think you will be able to sleep anywhere in your car, I think the police will check parking areas and there are often signs saying you cannot overnight in cars

I know Scarborough well and there are signs in the car parks to say do park overnight - I guess all you could do would be to park in the large Morrisons car park at Seamer well after the shop has closed and find a quiet corner. There are no houses nearby and no one would pass until the shop opened the enxt morning. There is a McDonalds there at the car park entrance that closes late and opens early if you needed drinks etc.

I think the signs say 'do not park overnight'.

If you park overnight in any car park you may get a knock on the window if the police/security decide to do a check....and they may, especially if yours in the only car in a supermarket car park.

Better to find proper accommodation somewhere, imo. Or take yourself off to a layby in the nearby countryside (although you may still get that knock, depending on what the police are doing at the time).

Travel Tips for Scarborough

Scarborough's micro-climate

by suzwa

You will never get used to Scarborough's weather - the best thing is to just deal with that fact and move on! The locals have a kind of 6th sense (or are we just more tolerant of going out in a T-shirt and getting so wet we have to go home and change?!), but for everyone else, my tip is to layer your clothes.

Never look at the weather in the morning and assume it will be the same all day. The double-bayed cliff formation which leaves us exposed to the North Sea while protecting us from winds that come off the land means that whatever weather report you see on the TV news, it is likely to be wrong. Last winter, when snow engulfed the entire country? Blazing sunshine here - it was T-shirt weather. The next day it rained, then it snowed, then sun again! You get the idea! Last week when the rest of the country had heavy rain, we got a bit of that, followed by hail - yes, in July! (it's unusual, even for here) - then the rest of the weekend was glorious sun.

If you are caught short in the rain, buy a cheap umbrella in the Pound Shop (one near the harbour on South Bay, one opposite Marks & Spencer in the town centre)... or just head for a cafe or a shop doorway until it passes, like the rest of us!

Worth a drive out to Hackness

by Britannia2 about Everley Hotel and Restaurant

A few miles out of Scarborough at Hackness is this hotel / restaurant called the Everley. On first impressions this is not a great inspiring establishment - as you can see from the photo it is not attractive as a building nor is the actual entrance with badly decorated walls but keep walking and it gets better. A public bar to the right abd a restuarant in front of you with great views over the valley in the distance.
The food is superb if a little expensive but for a special occasion well worth the drive. Something for everyone and all cooked to order. The starters are imaginitive and the main courses well presented and plenty on the plate.
Deserts typically English but OK. No mints or chocloates with the coffee which should be expected at these prices but recommended all the same. I had the steak in ale pie and it was one of the largest I have had recently. Full of good quality meat. My wife had the chicken which was well presented and in a tasty sauce.

The Harbour II

by steventilly

I don't remember the harbour being this busy when I was small. Now it seems full of fishing boats, most of them seemingly registered at other ports, so maybe Scarborough is a bit of a fishing "freeport" these days. Anyway, it makes an interesting and colourful sight.
