Be royalty for a day at Scarborough Castle

Scarborough, North Yorkshire

Take an audio tour around the Castle, enjoy breathtaking views from the headland of the North Yorkshire Coast and have tea in a historic building.

Situated in the heart of Scarborough, between the North and South Bays, this attraction opens up a world of heritage to the whole family.

With over 2,500 years of turbulent history behind it, Scarborough Castle defends a prominent headland with sheer drops to the sea. Before the castle was built, this natural fortress was favoured by prehistoric settlers, later serving as a Roman signal station and Viking haven.

Today you can climb to the battlement viewing platforms for dramatic coastline views. Enjoy tea in the unique 18th-century Master Gunner's House whilst taking in the views and before leaving visit the shop to take home some of your own medieval mementoes.
