Queen of the Yorkshire Coast

By Linda Tancs

Scarborough, dubbed Queen of the Yorkshire Coast, was immortalized in the Simon and Garfunkel song, Scarborough Fair.  Indeed, a fair did take place there for 500 years between the 13th and 18th centuries.  It may be better known for the fair than for the fact that it’s Britain’s first seaside resort. Its beaches, like North Bay and South Bay, overlook the ruins of Scarborough Castle and are some of the cleanest and most beautiful in the country.  Many of the hotels offer unrivaled sea views, like Red Lea, Weston, Clifton and Villa Esplanade.  For a Caribbean feel, consider a daily or weekly hire of one of those explosively colorful pastel beach huts.
