"What remains is the holiday-resort atmosphere that ran away with the town in the 18th and 19th centuries, capitalising on Scarborough's natural spa waters.” Lonely Planet


Why Visit Scarborough by Rail?

Scarborough is famous for its two attractive beaches that draw a huge crowd of local holidaymakers each year. As the third largest town in North Yorkshire, Scarborough has a population of around 60,000. The town used to be a medieval fishing village known for its natural spa waters. Nowadays, the thriving town of Scarborough is dotted with Victorian style spa resorts and a number of luxury hotels.

The TransPennine Express runs an hourly train service towards the Scarborough railway station, with onward connection to the cities of York, Leeds, Manchester, and to the rest of the country. The Northern Rail also runs a less frequent service towards Scarborough before going to Bridlington railway station.

If you want to witness big events in the city, there's no better place than the Southsea Common, a ten-acre open space that is also where you'll find the Southsea Castle, one of King Henry VII's most famous hideaways. According to history, it is from this castle where the King watched his vessel, the Mary Rose, sink into the ocean.

Most of the attractions in Scarborough run along the seafront, with a few of them in the town centre. Others would require a short walk inland towards a steep main road. The Scarborough Castle is the most prominent attraction in the city. It rises majestically on top of its headland. Legend has it that Richard I loves the view in this area so much that his ghost is said to keep on coming back here.

From the castle, check out the Sea Life Sanctuary, a family-friendly attraction where you get to witness marine life up close including colourful coral reefs, octopuses, seahorses, turtles, and other fascinating marine life creatures. Museum fanatics should check out the Rotunda museum, a museum that’s dedicated to the coastal geology of Northeast Yorkshire and has yielded Britain’s most significant dinosaur fossils.

Other attractions that are worth visiting in Scarborough are the St. Mary’s Church, Peasholm Park, Oliver’s Mount, Harbour and Fish Quay, and the Anne Bronte’s Grave. There are Open Top buses in Scarborough, which travels from the Spa towards the Peasholm Park. Take one of these buses to enjoy the beautiful views as it passes through the entire seafront.
