With 55 well-appointed bedrooms and the option of upgrading to a luxurious premier room, the New Southlands offers guests exceptional comfort, friendly service and an enjoyable stay.

As popular today as it was in Victorian times, Scarborough has dramatic cliffs and a historic harbour providing a dazzling backdrop for the bustling town centre. Take a gentle ride on the North Bay Railway from Peasholm Park to Scalby Mills and enjoy the beautiful views of Scarborough’s North Bay, or explore the area using an open top bus and skip between Scarborough’s most loved attractions with a great value hop-on-hop-off ticket. Get up close and personal with the sea creatures at Sea Life Scarborough. Meet Babs, the Giant Pacific Octopus, or discover the wonderful work of Yorkshire’s Seal Hospital where injured seals are rescued, rehabilitated and released into the local coastal waters.

As day turns to night, there’s plenty to do around Scarborough with three superb venues to choose from. St Joseph’s Theatre offers visitors a choice of shows in its two auditoria, while Scarborough Spa and Scarborough Open Air Theatre play host to explosive acts and big-name entertainers.

The New Southlands has its own programme of evening entertainment and guests can enjoy a glittering programme of live acts with musicians, vocalists, comedy and quizzes.

Local Attractions

Peasholm Park

This delightful park is never closed and can be enjoyed by all. The park has a lake and a wide range of boats can be hired during the summer, from rowing boats and canoes to pedalos. With a bandstand in the lake, you can regularly hear fantastic music being played whilst you sail along the lake in the warm summer sun. Two cafés are open during the tourist season if you want to get a drink, snack or ice cream whilst you enjoy these beautiful surroundings. 

Stephen Joseph Theatre

The original theatre, opened by Joseph in 1955, was a small venue located on the 1st floor of the Public Library. As the theatre’s popularity grew, it moved location in 1976 to the ground floor of Scarborough Boys' High School. The theatre finally found its permanent home in 1988 when the local Odeon cinema closed. Today, the theatre is as popular as ever with amazing acts from all over the country performing on a regular basis.   

North Bay Railway

This historic miniature railway park has been open since 1931, taking passengers from Peasholm Park to Scalby Mills station. The ride on the railway provides stunning views of Scarborough's North Bay. The North Bay Railway offers many attractions within its park, from boating on the lake to driver experience courses. The course offers you the chance to drive one of the historic miniature locomotives from Peasholm Park station to Scalby Mills

The Scarborough Fair

Set in the scenic grounds of the Flower of May Holiday Park, the Scarborough Fair boasts a unique collection of steam engines, vintage cars, mechanical organs and vintage fairground attractions. The famous 'Mighty Wurlitzer' can be seen in all its glory in the large ballroom. Take part in the Fair's tea dances, which take place every Wednesday and Thursday between 1-4pm, and look out for other events throughout the year. 

Sea Life Sanctuary

The Scarborough Sea Life Sanctuary hosts some magnificent marine creatures, including the ever-popular ‘Nemo’ clownfish and sharks. The sanctuary has many zones to visit, including the Bay of Rays, the Great Barrier Reef, Penguin Island and Shark Encounter. One of the top highlights of the aquarium is the Ocean Tunnel, which holds 156,000 litres of natural seawater.
