Sandy beaches, floral gardens, boating lakes, a twelfth century castle and the quaint North Bay Miniature Railway all combine to make traditional Scarborough the perfect seaside resort. Enjoy a cliff top stroll taking in the glorious scenery, amble around the harbour or relax in a pavement café. Maybe head to the Maritime Heritage Centre to discover artefacts that celebrate the maritime history of Scarborough including historical documents, photographs and exhibitions. Perhaps you’d like to learn about local heritage at the resort’s art gallery, housed in an imposing Italianate villa in notable Crescent Gardens, where the paintings and collections give a glimpse into the town’s past. We venture along the stunning North Yorkshire coast to quaint Whitby where must-sees include the spooky Benedictine abbey and the eerie Church of St Mary – landmarks that inspired Bram Stoker to write his famous Dracula novel. On another day we enjoy a change of scenery with delightful visits to the quintessential English market towns of Helmsley and Pickering
With its skyline dominated by the ruins of St Hilda’s Abbey and labyrinth of narrow alleyways, Whitby possesses old world charm. Climb the one hundred and ninety steps from the old town and you’ll arrive at the churchyard of St Mary. Other delights include the Captain Cook Memorial Museum, located in the seventeenth century harbourside house where he served his apprenticeship.
Helmsley & Pickering
Our day starts in picture postcard Helmsley, the only market town within the North Yorkshire Moors National Park. Attractions include a
delightful walled garden, the International Centre for Birds of Prey, art galleries and an ancient castle as well as its own brewery and unique stores. We continue to unspoilt Pickering, home to a museum of rural life, steam railway and the town’s Parish Church features medieval wall paintings.
