Elton John, Jessie J; you might think you’re reading the line up for a big city gig, think again.The stars flock to Scarborough.
Europe’s largest open air theatre dates from the 1930s and was reopened in 2010 by the Queen. The venue is a natural amphitheatre and the stage is set on an island in the middle of a lake, creating a unique theatre experience that’s made even more magical by the nearby spectacular views of the North Bay on balmy summer’s evening.
Make the most of your visit to the theatre, stay overnight and explore the area. North Bay is popular with surfers and there are plenty of attractions to explore, including Sealife Marine Sanctuary, Peasholm Park and the North Bay Miniature Railway. Stay an extra night and walk the Cleveland Way towards the nearby seaside town of Whitby with its gothic abbey ruins and bustling harbour.
