Weather in Scarborough
Scarborough’s weather can best be described as mixed. Summer is warm, but rainy days are expected, while the winter brings cold temperatures and windy conditions. Damp, overcast weather can happen at any time of the year, so make sure your Scarborough vacation rentals have plenty of waterproof gear to keep you dry. Don’t be put off by the less than excellent weather prospects; fun in Scarborough is not dependent on the weather as it is elsewhere.
Scarborough’s main draw is its dramatic coastline. Head on over to South Bay (commonly known as Scarborough Beach), grab some fish and chips, and go for a stroll. This is a superb, classic English seaside beach, with great views out over the water. Away from the beach is the usual seaside fare, such as cafes, shops, arcade areas, and more. Even if the weather isn’t the best, this is still a great spot to while away a few hours. By booking a Scarborough vacation rental, you have somewhere warm and cosy close by to return to at the end of a long day exploring the coast.
Scarborough Castle dates back to the 12th century, though the site has history that dates back over 3,000 years. This is a terrific day out for the whole family. Explore the ruins and take in the great views of the coast. You’ll enjoy the history and the lovely tea room, while the kids can become engrossed in history as they watch re-enactments of the famous battles that have taken place at the castle over the years. It’s a must see, even if the walk up to the castle can sometimes be a little challenging, especially when it’s cold and blustery outside - but that’s all part of the experience.
If you can, try to see a performance at the Scarborough Spa. This 19th century building is magnificent and has a long history, and it’s still used for performances to this day. A large complex with a number of stages and rooms, it hosts regular events and has an on-site dining room. Whether admiring the beauty of the building or away at the sea, it’s a great experience that transports you back to the Victorian era.
Scarborough for Children
Children will love their stay at many of the Scarborough vacation homes on offer, not the least because of all the fun they’ll have at the beach. If sandcastles aren’t quite cutting it, treat them to a seaside donkey ride and make it extra special.
At the Rotunda Museum, which opened in 1929, they can indulge in their love for dinosaurs and all things Jurassic. There they can see fossils of the kinds of beasts that used to roam Scarborough, which will get them excited to look for fossils themselves along the coastline! Hands-on activities ensure they’re thoroughly engaged in this one of a kind, historic museum.
Your kids won’t have seen anything like the North Bay Railway before. One of the town’s best attractions, this miniature railway has been a Scarborough attraction for more than 80 years and features a tiny train that visitors can take a ride on.
When the sun is shining, there are few better places than Peasholm Park, Scarborough’s best park. There’s a lake that visitors can row or canoe on, as well as lovely streams that make the park popular for afternoon strolls. During the summer, concerts are often held at the bandstand, so try your best to attend one during your stay at your Scarborough vacation rental.
