The beautiful Victorian spa resort of Scarborough sits on the golden sandy beaches of the North Yorkshire coast and boasts many excellent Scarborough Bed and Breakfast properties. The traditional Scarborough bed and breakfast makes a sensible and cost effective place to stay for the whole family and is an ideal base from which to launch an exploration of the town and surrounding countryside.
Scarborough old town is protected by its harbor and limestone cliffs, and the new town rises above it with splendid views out to the North Sea coast. It is the mineral spa and sandy beaches that have made this one of the greatest northern seaside resorts. It has an elegant Victorian promenade sweeping from the North Bay to the South Bay.
It is the largest resort on the Yorkshire coast with a population of over 50,000, and it is home to a flourishing business economy supplying the digital and creative services. Easily accessible by road on the A64, and by rail, with the TransPennine express, Scarborough has a park and ride service to take you to the town centre. The famous Scarborough Castle, which was built in the 11th century, sits boldly on the high rocky promontory, which is a feature of the area.
The South Bay was the site of the original medieval settlement, and it remains the centre of tourist activity today. In addition to B&B properties there are theatres, amusement arcades, bars, cafes, and famously safe sandy beaches. The commercial centre is based in the new town, which has nightlife and shopping.
The splendid Regency and Victorian terraces of South Bay are home to many desirable apartments, hotels and guest house accommodations. Both the drama series', The Royal and The Royal Today were shot in the area, as was the film Little Voice. Scarborough is a cultural destination with the National Student Drama Festival, the Spa Centre, Futurist Theatre, Beached Festival and the Rotunda Museum.
As a base from which to launch a family holiday it is difficult to find better than the traditional Scarborough bed and breakfast. The safe beaches, and seaside attractions are always popular, and the town is still a fishing harbour, where you can visit the little port and buy the freshly caught fish. The Brunswick shopping centre is great for when the weather is a little inclement, and there is a large indoor market with antique stalls and small independent traders.
The Spa Orchestra plays in the beautiful surroundings of the Grade II listed Spa. It is in fact the only remaining seaside orchestra in the country. There is a large community of artists and several galleries. With a Jazz festival, Acoustic Gathering, and the rock and pop Beached festival in the summer held on the beach, the town is buzzing with entertainment. The Rotunda Museum is a Grade II listed building and is one of the oldest of its kind in the country. Built in 1839, it has substantial collection of Jurassic geology.
