Welcome to Yorkshire
Scarborough is one of the UK’s most celebrated Victorian resorts and our mini break introduces you to and then lets you indulge in one of the town’s finest assets – fish and chips! With Scarborough’s traditional seaside attractions lining the South Bay coupled with the quieter sandy beaches of the tranquil North Bay it is not hard to see why the town is growing in popularity once again. We shall also visit Scarborough’s northern neighbour Whitby. Here we will journey to the spooky streets immortalised by the words of Bram Stoker in his classic work, Dracula! Why not sample some homemade fudge while we stroll the narrow-cobbled streets and browse the range of Whitby jet.
- Sample delectable fish and chips on Scarborough’s seafront
- Visit the stunning medieval castle atop Scarborough’s headland
- Discover the fabled cobbled streets of Bram Stoker’s Whitby
- Arrive into Whitby on board the North Yorkshire Moors steam railway

Tuesday 5th May
Today we shall arrive into Scarborough and travel to our hotel, only a short walk from the seafront. This evening we will make the quick walk down to the seafront to enjoy arguably Scarborough’s best fish and chips. Crispy golden batter and flaky white fish are served on the South bay next to the west pier, with fishing vessels bobbing in the harbour illuminated by the glowing arcades.
Dinner included. Overnight in Scarborough.
Wednesday 6th May
Today we shall take a leisurely stroll through Scarborough’s old town to reach Scarborough castle. A towering medieval keep looms over the South Bay and the grounds provide spectacular panoramic views of both bays. There has been a fortification here since Viking times and was the site of a Roman signalling post. The keep itself was built by William Le Gros, and had its heyday in the twelfth century when it was fortified by Henry II and King John. The castle saw battle when it was besieged by the parliamentarians during the English civil war!
Returning down through the old town we will enjoy some free time to wander Scarborough’s seafront, be it a brisk walk around the marine drive to the quieter white sands of the North Bay, or a stroll along the pier to the historic lighthouse. In the mid-afternoon we will reconvene to get the blood flowing with an adrenaline fuelled speed boat ride to feel the refreshing spray of the North Sea.
Breakfast included. Overnight in Scarborough
Thursday 7th May
This morning we will travel through the glorious North Yorkshire countryside to Pickering, where we’ll board the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. Pulled by an old-fashioned locomotive engine we will journey through the rolling countryside of God’s own country before arriving into Whitby.
We will enjoy a guided historic walking tour of the town. The imposing whale bone arch looms over the town and serves as a reminder of the town’s fishing and whaling past. There are museums in ode to the town’s maritime past and also its most famous son, the world-renowned explorer Captain Cook. We will be able to walk the cobbled streets sampling fresh seafood, fudge and having the opportunity to buy Whitby jet, the precious black stone that became popular in Victorian times. There will also be the chance to climb the steps to the outstanding ruins of Whitby Abbey.
Breakfast included. Overnight in Scarborough.
Friday 8th May
Today is our last day in Scarborough. We will have the morning at leisure before our departure.
