Things to do

Explore cultural Scarborough's great indoors

If you can tear yourself away from Scarborough's scenic waterfront, you'll find plenty of indoor attractions well worth your time, too. At the Rotunda Museum you can get a mole's-eye view of the area's natural history with an extensive collection of fossils, minerals, and other geological specimens in a striking, circular building. And Scarborough Castle is always worth a visit. This ruined hilltop fortress from the 12th century offers panoramic sea views, and the site hosts regular events and activities throughout the year. At the Scarborough SEA LIFE aquarium, you can get face-to-face with octopi, seals, and other marine life.


Just coasting through along Scarborough's shoreline

Thanks to its position along the North Yorkshire coast, Scarborough's beaches are a hit with locals and visitors alike. Beachgoers of all ages flock to South Bay Beach, a sandy stretch of coastline beside the North Sea with plenty of space for swimming and sunbathing. You'll also find a beachside promenade, and a pier with an amusement park. Outdoorsy types can stroll the Cleveland Way, a nature trail that winds its way around the outside of the North York Moors National Park, just a short drive from your Scarborough vacation rental.


Summertime Scarborough—a waterfront dream

Scarborough has an oceanic climate, with mild summers, chilly winters, and regular rainfall throughout the year. Average summer highs peak at 66 degrees in July and August, while average highs in the winter hover around 44 degrees in December, January, and February. The area's mild climate makes it a favorite for summertime visitors, and most of the city tends to empty out once autumn rolls around. You'll have the best luck finding more budget-friendly Scarborough vacation rentals during the less busy winter months, but be warned—the blustery winter days can plunge into the teens, so bundle up accordingly.
