    Seaside Skyline

    by steventilly Written May 27, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The amusements may be "tacky" but the views are still quite nice - beacuse its built on a cliff, the buildings stack up one behind another and streets lead up and away from the seafront.

    The Harbour

    by steventilly Written May 27, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As you get to the harbour you pass the main batch of fish stalls. Walk onto the first harbour jetty and cut through the buildings so that you're by the harbour side rather than the beach...

    Couldn't resist this lovely view back to The Grand looking past the lobster nets at the harbour. That boat "The Hispaniola" is just to the left of the pots.

    Walk Up To The Castle

    Leave the harbour, go past the funfair, cross the road, pass the little cafe and climb up to the castle. Nice views of the harbour and the town begin to open up as you climb.

    Spectacular Harbour View

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a view of the harbour from the climb up to the castle. Lovely isn't it. Further up the path and looking left you'll see St. Mary's Church - we'll visit that later.

    The sandy beach is a great place to walk along, build sand-castles or even venture into the North Sea.

    Old Town

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The old town is situated on the South Bay between the harbour & the castle. Here you'll find interesting narrow old streets and steps that lead you up to the castle.

    Scarborough harbour is an enjoyable place to explore. As well as the trawlers, cargo boats & private yachts, there are pleasure boats that take visitors out to sea & along the coast.

    Nice park at the North side of Scarborough with weekly summer events.
