This is the best part of Scarborough for me, history and a nice tea room. It is a bit of a climb to get to the castle but well worth it.

Went to the castle, as we'd arrived a bit early for the beach. It's a steep walk, so be prepared if you have pushchair/wheel chair etc.. Paid £6 each for Adults and under Fives are free. Plenty of staff dressed up in period costumes to get into the theme of things, a nice little tea room and clean toilets. Plenty... More

The day we visited it was almost too windy to take advantage of all this has to offer. Weren't brave enough to climb up to the top of the keep, or walk the ramparts. On a good day I think it must be wonderful. Nice teashop with light meals

Nice views and a nice area to walk round. Probably would have got more out of it if we could have spent time going over its history but with two young children that's not likely! To park anywhere near the castle you need a parking disc. These are free from any local shop and allow you to park for free... More

Steep climb to the castle and only accessible by car to the bottom of a big hill so the disabled may struggle Also try and get a local parking disc permit from one of the local shops as the area that you need to park in is parking permits only ,so the blue badge won't do .the castle itself is...

This place is fantastic. The views over the north and south bays are stunnng and the ruins, and they are ruins as they are nearing a thousand years old, are fascinating. The free audio tour is very effective, but this is also where the attraction loses a star. There are signs dotted around that show you which piece of audio... More
