Places to go and things to do in and around Scarborough...

Beaches - in the rain and in the sunshine.  We went to beaches at Sandsend (near Whitby), North and South Bay of Scarborough, Robins Hood Bay (for rockpools) and Filey.

Trains - big ones and small ones, diesel and steam.  We caught the train from Seamer to York where we visited the National Railway Museum.  We went on the North York Moors Railway from Pickering to Goathland (where Heartbeat was filmed) and also caught up with it at Grossmont where they have an engine shed to visit.  We went several times on the North Bay miniature railway - where my mum even got to have a turn at driving the engine!

Cafes and Pubs - lots of these for elevenses, lunches, afternoon snacks and dinners various.

Culture - Whitby for it's old town and Abbey, Robin Hood's Bay for awesome windy streets, Scarborough for the castle.

Walks in the Woods - where we were staying there were plenty of woodland walks to discover with the dog.  Just watch out for bullocks in fields!
