The town with the alter ego

I originally commented on scarborough on my north yorkshire page and said "dont go there its too commercialised and tacky"-then I discovered the north bay!
The north bay is the alter ego of the "kiss me quick" hats type south bay, The north bay houses the wonderfull sea life sanctuary at scalby mills, and a bit further up is Peasholme park, with its lake (still with the enactment of battles carried out with little motorised boats that I used to watch as a girl nearly 40 years ago), beautiful grounds and other low key entertainment. And of course Nort bay is crowned with a beautifull expansive beach watched over by scarborough castle perched on the cliff side.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great beach, marine sanctuary are here at north bay
  • Cons:tacky south bay is just around the corner
  • In a nutshell:whatever you want -bingo or wildlife , you can find it here
