Points of Interest in Scarborough
- Scarborough Castle.
- Harbour and fish quay
- Oliver's Mount
- Anne Brontë's Grave
The Castle headland divides the coast into two bays, each different in character. South Bay is developed, and you'll find amusement arcades, a funfair, the harbour, the Spa complex, donkey rides, and all the colour of a traditional English seaside resort. North Bay, by contrast, is relatively undeveloped and is quieter.
- The Stephen Joseph Theatre is one of the few theatres outside London where new plays are reviewed in the national newspapers, and is where all of local resident Sir Alan Ayckbourn's plays are premiered.
- Walk around... The cobbled street next to the Futurist Theatre on the Foreshore has beautiful art work on the walls. Other walks you should do include the Italian Gardens on the South Bay, just off the Esplanade. Walk up and around Oliver's Mount, which offers spectacular views around the town. A walk to the castle offers rewarding views of both North and South Bay, as well as being able to view the grave of Anne Brontë in St. Mary's churchyard (the only Bronte not to be buried in Haworth).
- Jump on one of the Open Top buses which travel from the Spa to Peasholm Park to enjoy the entire seafront and Castle headland.
- Scarborough's popular miniature railway travels from Peasholm to Scalby Mills around the newly revamped (2010) Open Air Theatre. With tunnels, bridges and stations, it's just like a normal train service, just smaller.
The Harbour Bar on the foreshore, South Bay, has the best icecream in town (for summer). Its fantastic, kitsch yet completely genuine 1930s ice-cream parlour and coffee shop that also serves horlicks, hot chocolate,Bovril drinks and an assortment of snacks (just what you need to warm you up after a walk on the sea-front on a cold winters day). It is restored to its original form every ten years or so at great expense.
For good fish and chips, you should try Mother Hubbards or Wackers in the town center but all the fish and chip shops are reasonably good. Cafe Fish on York Place is also excellent. Small Fry on North Street (behind the Post Office) is excellent, fries in vegetable oil, but is closed Saturday night and Sundays.
Coffee at its best - Roasters . Fully qualified Barista and boy it shows. mmm.. coffee
The Cask public house at the south end of Valley Bridge offers good quality meals at reasonable prices.
For a world renowned restaurant, try the Lanterna on Queen Street. Difficult to get in, but serves quality Italian food.
Florios, on Aberdeen Walk is a popular, and very busy, Italian restaurant.
Scarborough has a number of Indian restaurants, the Indian Rose on Victora Road and the Scarborough Tandoori on St. Thomas Street are two of the most popular.
Cafe Heart, at the side of the market on Eastborough offers a fabulous selection of smoothies, juices and thick continental hot chocolate along with toasties, pittas and sandwiches with a continental flavour (closed Sundays).
- Francis Tea Room, 7 South Street, Ramshill. This is a lovely old fashioned tea house serving delicious Cakes and scones. Each table partitioned off for privacy and provides for a great atmosphere. The staff are very helpful and it is not expensive with cake and tea for under 6 pounds
Rock - preferably pink with "Scarborough" written in it.
- North of Scarborough. Robin Hood`s Bay and Whitby Abbey
