My Holiday in Britain’s First Resort: Scarborough, North Yorkshire

Hello folks! I bet you wondered where I have been for the past week or so? I’ve been on holiday! A long-overdue, much needed family break, taking time away from work and domestic stress, and reconnecting with our children. We stayed in Scarborough, which I didn’t realise is Britain’s first holiday resort. It says so on the signs that welcome you into town (which I just remembered I forgot to take a photo of, whoops!)


Anyway, I have always loved Scarborough, and remember happy holidays there with my family when I was a child. So it was a wonderful experience to take our two young daughters, and show them the delights of a Victorian holiday town. There is some beautiful architecture, dating back hundreds of years, but the Victorian town houses are the most striking as you explore the streets. We spent most of our time on the seafront, on the beach, in the sea, in the amusement arcades, and visiting Scarborough Castle (more on that later). All in all, it was a fantastic holiday, and I look forward to our return at a later date.

    I love Scarborough and Whitby although they are very different. You’ve reminded me I must go back soon!
