Make the most of your time in Scarborough

A visit to Alpamare Scarborough is well worth the journey in itself. But if you want to make a weekend (or even a week) of your trip to the beautiful seaside town of Scarborough, there’s no shortage of sights and activities to keep all the family occupied.

Here are some of our recommendation for how to spend your time – after you’ve visited Alpamare Scarborough, of course.

Scarborough Sea Life Sanctuary

Packed with both indoor and outdoor exhibits and over 50 displays of marine life including seals, otters and penguins. There’s also Europe’s only penguin walkthrough feature and a hands-on rockpool experience where you can learn all about the underwater world.

Scarborough Open Air Theatre

We’ve got Europe’s largest open air theatre right around the corner. This prestigious venue has played host to some of the biggest names in the music industry, including Elton John, Jessie J, Boyzone, Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, JLS, Status Quo and McFly, to name a few.

Stephen Joseph Theatre

From some of the best theatre productions in Yorkshire to the latest blockbuster films, the Stephen Joseph Theatre has it all. No matter how long your stay in Scarborough, check what’s on to avoid missing a performance the whole family can enjoy.

Scarborough beach

It wouldn’t be a trip to the seaside without a walk along the beach, and Scarborough has not one but two beautiful clean beaches to explore. Stroll along the promenade and you’ll see everything you expect from a classic British seaside town; donkey rides, café bars, seafood stalls and plenty of candy floss.

Flamingo Land

If you’re visiting Scarborough and the North Yorkshire coast for a few days, be sure to head to Flamingo Land. Just over 20 miles outside Scarborough, this is Yorkshire’s biggest theme park.

As well as being packed with rides for all the family – white knuckle thrills for the grown-ups to a great choice of junior rides – there’s so much to see and do. From the UK’s most visited zoo to a host of live concerts and performances, you’ll find it all at Flamingo Land.
