Picture England’s seaside at the Scarborough Art Gallery

Scarborough, North Yorkshire

Discover the historical and cultural heritage of Scarborough through the works of local artists.

This isn’t just an art gallery in Scarborough, but a place that celebrates all aspects that make the town what it is.

As well as works by local artists, the paintings, photographs and exhibitions give you a glimpse into the town’s past, all housed in an imposing Italianate villa in Scarborough’s historic Crescent Gardens.

There’s a mix of touring and permanent shows, where pieces by Atkinson Grimshaw sit alongside cultural check points, including old railway posters that once advertised Scarborough’s popularity as a seaside resort.

Even if you’re not an art aficionado, stop by – the staff here will be more than happy to give you an introduction to this fascinating gallery.
