Visit Scarborough and its two sweeping sandy beaches, rugged castle ruins, and museums for rain days. There’s plenty to do in Scarborough. Take a boat trip off shore to meet lazy seal colonies, surf in the North Sea or chug through the North York Moors on a traditional steam train. Follow dinosaur footprints on North and South Bays, then see the real things fossilised in the geology museum. The fair in the folk song made famous by Simon and Garfunkel may no longer exist but there’s still a traditional market hall packed with produce and regular craft fairs.
