Local Attractions

Scarborough Castle

The castle sits in a fantastic location with picturesque views over the Yorkshire coastline. With over 3,000 years of history, take a walk through the grassy headland and relax with a beverage and snack in the Master Gunner's house. The castle has twice been besieged by Parliamentarians during the Civil War and is famous for its defence against the Jacobites, the German Kaiser during WWI and even Napoleon. 

The Open Air Theatre

The first production to be staged at the Open Air Theatre was called 'Merrie England', back in 1932. The popular 'It's a Knockout' was held here at the theatre every Wednesday for around 11 years. The stage is built on an island in the middle of a lake, and the audience's seating is fixed opposite the stage. In 1977, the stage and the dressing rooms were demolished and most of the seating removed. The theatre was officially reopened in 2010 by The Queen and since then has played host to the biggest stars from around the world, including Elton John and Status Quo.

Rotunda Museum

Many amazing pieces of history can be found at the Rotunda Museum, from the famous Gristhorpe Man skeleton (bronze age man), to the fascinating dinosaur fossils found on the East Yorkshire coast. In addition to its incredible artefacts, the Rotunda building is well worth visiting for its unique circular architecture alone. The museum was based on a design suggested by William 'Strata' Smith, famous for being the father of English geology.

Castle Howard

A truly breathtaking architectural marvel, the building of Castle Howard began in 1699 and took over a hundred years to fully complete. Inside the castle, you can view the amazing world-famous art housed within Castle Howard's lavish interior. There are around 1,000 acres of parkland, including rolling lawns, fountains and lakes, temples and ornamental gardens.

Treasurer's House

The House contains a fascinating collection of objects and items brought from around the world by Frank Green, a wealthy industrialist. Visit the banqueting table in the Great Hall and transport yourself back in time, imagining what it would have been like to be present at a feast. The Blue Drawing Room is probably one of the most famous rooms in the house and a must-see. Created by Frank Green and based on the Palace of Versailles, you will see a dazzling collection of furniture covered in gold, an extremely expensive commodity at the time.
