Scarborough enjoys an unrivalled position as one of Britain’s premier costal resorts yet also lies tantalisingly close to North Yorkshire’s rugged National Park. On this holiday you can enjoy the golden beaches, superb parks and gardens and a wide range of leisure amenities which have given Scarborough its justifiable reputation, as well as the natural beauty and historical heritage of Yorkshire.
The 3 star Esplanade Hotel enjoys a commanding position on Scarborough’s South Cliff. The hotel is just a 2 minute walk to the beach and overlooks the south bay. Hotel facilities include a garden, a restaurant which has views over the harbour and to Scarborough Castle. Bedrooms are all en-suite with tea/coffee making facilities. There is a lift to all floors.
Monday From your front door we travel north to Yorkshire, arriving at our holiday hotel, the Esplanade Hotel in Scarborough, mid afternoon. We will enjoy a pre-dinner drink reception with time to meet our fellow guests.
Tuesday After breakfast at the hotel we travel further north following the coast road to Whitby, the famous fishing port which was once the home of Captain James Cook. High above the harbour stands the 7th century Whitby Abbey, the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s Dracula. We have time to explore the narrow streets and busy harbour side before driving to picturesque Goathland, famous as ‘Aidensfield’ in TV’s popular ‘Heartbeat’.
Wednesday Today is at leisure in Scarborough. Enjoy the delightful promenade in the Belvedere Gardens or take a short walk to the towns centre and shops. Why not go to the beaches of the South Bay or to the busy little harbour. Explore the town with its indoor markets and antique shops, or walk up to Scarborough’s fortress castle and enjoy the views across the Bays.
Thursday This morning we leave for a day in the ancient and historic City of York. In York there are lots of things to do and see. The National Railway Museum, the Jorvik Viking Centre, the Castle Museum, or stroll around the City Walls, wander around the little alleyways, and of course, no visit to York is complete without seeing magnificent York Minister. Late afternoon we return to Scarborough.
Friday After breakfast we bid farewell to our hosts at the Esplanade Hotel and begin our journey to our home areas to be greeted by our awaiting taxis.
