We used to go to Scarborough every year for our annual holiday, but since I became "independant" I've hardly been - I can't remember the last time.
Well, I went recently and oh how much it has changed. For one thing, there is now a fantastic castle towering above the town - if that was there when I was small I sure never saw it ;-) And the fantastic busy fishing harbour, and pleasure trips, and yacht marina, and the Church with it's grave of Anne Bronte...

- In a nutshell:It's got everything!
Atlantis is the outdoor swimming and water fun park in the Norh Bay (by Peasholm Park). It always looked a tad cold when... more travel advice
