South bay beach and Grand Hotel
Scarborough is located on the North East coast, on the A171 approx. 20 miles south of Whitby, on the A165 approx. 16 miles north of Bridlington, on the A64, approx. 40 miles north east of York. There are two large bays, both with a sandy beach. The north bay starts at Scalby Mills, where the Sea Life Centre is and runs down to just below the castle. The south bay starts with the harbour/marina and runs for miles down towards Filey.

Peasholm Park is the main park at the North Bay, with boat rides on the lake, a good cafe and some very nice quiet areas where you can sit and think or just read your newspaper. In the summer months, battle re-enactments take place on and over the lake. With model ships and ‘planes battling it out.

A recent addition on the Marine Drive near the Peasholm Park end is this steel man.
Made entirely of steel, the statue was fabricated by artist Ray Lonsdale
and was purchased by a local lady so the statue would remain in Scarborough.
