Scarborough Castle is an English Heritage attraction. From the castle ruins look out over mile after mile of Yorkshire coastline, and within the grounds themselves learn more about the castle's exciting history. An audio tour is available, and there are tea rooms on site.

The theatre hosts family shows and live music concerts from some of the biggest names in the industry. A typical season might include performances by Boyzone, Status Quo, Jason Donovan, Little Mix and Bob the Builder, providing plenty of summer entertainment.
Sea Life Marine Sanctuary
The Sea Life Sanctuary in Scarborough is home to more than 50 exhibits with sea creatures, otters, seals and penguins, as well as interactive rock pools and an on-site mini golf course.
The 1,000 acres of gardens are stunning whatever the time of year, and with many diverse areas to explore, visitors can find peace and tranquillity whichever path they choose.
Originally home to the treasurers of York Minster and built over a Roman road, the house is not all that it seems. Nestled behind the Minster, its size, splendour and contents are a constant surprise to visitors – as are the famous ghost stories. The house was carefully restored between 1897 and 1930 by one remarkable man, wealthy local industrialist Frank Green, with thirteen rooms presented in a variety of historic styles. Outside is an attractive formal sunken garden and herb and produce garden.
