Mermaids, dinosaurs and pirate adventure on the Yorkshire Coast

Scarborough, North/East Yorkshire

Hunt for fossils on the beach or solve the mermaid mystery and sail on a pirate ship. Go on a dinosaur walk or explore the Maritime Trail.

Explore the coast between Staithes and Spurn Point taking time to relax and have fun. Whether it rains or shines there’s loads to keep the family entertained; swimming, skate parks, crazy golf, surfing, flying kites, rock-pooling, fossil hunts and dinosaur walks.

Walk the ‘Treasure Trails’ – these lead you to hidden local treasures such as Robin Hood’s Bay, Scarborough Harbour & Castle Spy Trail. Solve the mystery of the Mermaid’s Curse in Staithes’ winding alleyways and explore Bridlington’s Maritime Trail.

Looking for something quirky?  Toast marshmallows on an open fire and sleep under the stars in a wigwam on a working farm or in a Wild West themed Tipi, stay in a vintage caravan, sail on a pirate ship or feed the animals at a Farm Park.
