Travel Tips for Scarborough

North Bay Views

by sandysmith

The North Bay of Scarborough is less developed for the tourists but the views across the sands to the castle ruins on the hill above the harbour are lovely - even with threatening rain clouds above.

Park and ride

by Britannia2

The Weaponess Valley Road park and ride facility closed in early 2009 and has been replaced with two new park and ride facilities - one on Filey Road (A165) and one on Seamer Road (A64)- both to the south of the town. These are a good idea and should ease the traffic congestion but have unfortunately added to it because traffic from the north east and north has to cross the town centre to get to the park and ride outlets.
Service 64 from Seamer Road starts at 07.00 and runs every 12 minutes until the last journey back from the town centre at 19.08.
Service 165 starts at 07.06 and runs every 12 minutes with the last journey back from the town centre at 19.02.
The buses used are low floor easy access and the departure point buildings have clean toilets and baby changing facilities.
Town centre stops are all in the shopping centre and for the South Bay you have to get off at Aquarium Top and walk down the hill. For the North Bay the stop in St Thomas Street is the nearest and then a long walk or change to a service bus.
Single fare 90p / return £1.80 and this includes the cost of parking your car.

Sir George Cayleys house

by Britannia2

The first tip in what will be a seperate series on historical Scarborough in a dedicated album but posted as a tip for now. Scarborough was home to the man known as "The father of aviation". His house stands near St Marys Church high above the harbour in a street that is actually called Paradise. In late August 2009 when the photo below was taken it was actually for sale and it does seem a quite distinctive house. There is certainly a lot of history here - George set the concept of a modern aeroplane as early as 1799 here in this house and he also designed the very first glider that could carry a man aloft - today modern aircraft design is based on those early designs including his idea for cambered wings.
He was also a Whig MP for Scarborough and helped found the University of Westminster in London. He also had ideas for caterpillar tractors, automatic signals for railway crossings, seat belts (!), theatre architecture and land reclamation amongst other ideas.
A quite remarkable man and you can see his house in Scarborough and at Brompton on Swale near to Scarborough the hall he lived in in later life and where he died.

Ox Pasture Hall hotel


"ox pasture hall hotel"

The hotel is unusually laid out around this courtyard, wherever you go you have lovely views, be it of the courtyard ,the gardens or the ponds and fields. A stay here is afeast for the eyes as well as the stomach!

as well as listening to the birds you can hear the fountains in the pond in the middle of the courtyard, benches helpfully placed next to your room door give you somewhere peacefull to sit and enjoy the view ( or read your book).
On an evening the courtyard is attractively lit with coloured lamps.
Unfortunately these photos dont do it justice.
