We include a train ride on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, a coastal drive and time in historic York itself.
The 4 star Crown Hotel enjoys a commanding position above Scarborough’s South Beach, yet is just a short walk from the beach and the town centre. Bedrooms are all en-suite with TV and tea/coffee making facilities. The hotel hosts its own swimming pool and modern fitness centre. Guests can relax in the sauna, spa bath or steam room, or try a range of indulgent treatments in the elegant spa salon. There is a lift to all floors.
From your front door to the waiting Club Class coach, we make our way north over the Humber Bridge to Hull for a lunch stop then take the scenic road through the Yorkshire Wolds to arrive at the Crown Spa Hotel, Scarborough with time to settle in and relax before dinner.
A free day to discover the varied attractions of Scarborough. Enjoy the delightful promenade in the attractive Belvedere Gardens, take a short walk across the spa footbridge to the town centre and shops, or the cliff lift down to the golden beaches of the South Bay or the little harbour.
