Scarborough in North Yorkshire is a great place for short holidays on the East coast and is close to other holiday destinations such as Bridlington, Whitby, Robins Hood Bay and Filey. Been the largest holiday resort on the Yorkshire coastline you are never short of things to do during your stay at the various bed and breakfasts. The resort is split by the Scarborough Castle into the North Bay and the South Bay.
The South Bay was the original site of a medieval settlement and the harbour. This area still remains a focus for tourism with cafe's, arcades, amusements and a sandy beach to keep you entertained,especially on the sunnier days! There is bed and breakfast accommodation along the coast and inland, a great selection to ensure you find the one you want.
The North Bay is home to the fabulous Peasholm Park which recently (2007) underwent a restoration. Also you will find the North Bay miniature railway which runs a small distance starting from from the park to the Sea Life Centre. The North Bay, much like the South Bay, has popular sandy beaches and many rock pools at low tide.
You can still purchase fresh, locally caught seafood at the fish market. The working harbour of Scarborough is small in comparison to what it used to be but you can still get some great deals on locally caught produce. Along with the more traditional stalls you can shop at all the major shopping chains such as Marks & Spencers, Debenhams and TK Maxx. Scarborough has two shopping centres, an indoor market and a large range of independent shops such as specialist items and antique shops.
With the choice of B&B's in Scarborough you are sure to find the one that suits your requirement. You can choose from the more expensive, luxury bed and breakfasts in Scarborough or budget accommodation to save you more money for spending in the resort.
As short weekend breaks or mid-week breaks are becoming increasingly popular you cant find a better suited style of accommodation than a B& B. They offer great value for money, along with flexibility and comfort that other accommodation cant compete with. The personal touch you get in a B&B cant be matched in a hotel environment.
