Hotels found near Scarborough
Scarborough is a holiday resort located on the North Sea coast of North Yorkshire, England. The modern town lies 100 to 220 feet (30 to 70 metres) above sea level, on limestone cliffs. The older part of the town lies around the harbour and is protected by a rocky headland. It is served by Scarborough railway station.
The modern town of Scarborough has a population of around 50,000, and is the major holiday resort of the Yorkshire Coast. It is home to residential communities, business, fishing and service industries plus a burgeoning digital and creative economy.
The town has a North Bay and a South Bay. The South Bay is the main focus and contains many arcades and entertainment facilities and is overlooked by the town itself - a vibrant shopping centre. The North Bay has traditionally been 'the quiet end' of the resort and is home to Peasholm Park which has recently been granted funding to be restored to its Japanese-themed glory. The park still features a mock maritime battle (based on the Battle of the River Plate) re-enacted on the boating lake with large model boats and fireworks throughout the summer holiday season.
The North Bay is linked to the South Bay by an impressive Victorian promenade, built around the headland and soon to be home to the controversial large-scale sculpture The Wave, consisting of "21 steel members, each element a deconstructed section of a wave, which when viewed as an overall composition recreates the wave cycle". Overlooking both bays is Scarborough Castle, which was bombarded by the German warships Derfflinger and von der Tann in the First World War. Both bays have excellent sandy beaches and some superb rock-pooling opportunities at low tide.
The South Cliff Promenade situated above the Spa & South Cliff gardens and affording stunning views of the South Bay and old town. Its Victorian splendour is still intact and quality hotels and desirable apartments form the backdrop to the ITV drama The Royal which can often be seen filming in the area. The South Bay has the largest illuminated "Star Disk" anywhere in the UK. It is 26 metres across and is fitted with subterranean lights representing the 42 brightest stars and major constellations that can be seen from Scarborough in the northern skies.
