Adventures In :: England - Scarborough Castle

Last year we headed to Scarborough as I've wanted to go absolutely ages. Our first stop (and main objective for the day) was Scarborough Castle, up on top of a huge hill. Now, if you are expecting a grand building, this one is not for you as it is literally a bit of the castle walls and a tower. If it's the views that you are wanting, you can't get much better.

The property itself covers the whole top of the hill, so you can walk around the perimeter and get amazing views of the sea. Or just hang out in the grass if it's nice enough. 
Oh look a crevice, I'll go crawl in it so you can take my picture. Standard.
The seagulls thought the walls were a great place to hang out. 
The views over the harbour and houses below were great, and made me really excited to head down the hill. We stopped off for some fish and chips and then decided to have a walk around the side of the mountain. Our excitement was short lived as it started to downpour, with no shelter in site, so we walked for about ten minutes and got completely soaked through. I was not a happy bunny as I'm not a fan of being soaking wet, who is really? Wet jeans are the worst. So, needless to say, there's not a whole lot else I can say about Scarborough as we hightailed it out of there. I do really want to go back though, as there's an aquarium we missed out on! It's a cute seaside town as well, and I do love being by the sea. 

Have you ever been to Scarborough? What would you recommend doing there?

  1. I love Scarborough! So many happy memories there as a child. The sea life centre is great, I can happily spend hours watching the otters and penguins. Peasholm park is lovely to visit on a nice sunny day too.

  3. That's what we were trying to get to, the sea life center! I was so excited to see the penguins. Will more than likely make a trip back just for that.

  4. I have never been, but your pictures make me want to. Agreed - no one is a fan of being soaking wet. The worst!

  6. I'm so ashamed of not having been to more castles in England when I lived there (all 30 years of them!) - so many castles and beautiful things to visit. Looks magical.

  9. Oh my gosh - looks just out of a movie set. The second photo took my breath away...turrets and stonewalls being taken over by the earth. It's a bummer that it rained while you were there but it is England after all : )

  13. I know, I'm such a sucker for stone walls and turrets too. If we let the rain stop us from doing things we'd stay home all the time!
