Attraction in Scarborough
With its 2,500 year history, stunning location and panoramic views over the
dramatic Yorkshire coastline, Scarborough Castle fully deserves its place as
one of the finest tourist attractions in the North. It started life as an
Iron Age Fort, was occupied by the Romans, became a Viking settlement and
reached its heyday under Henry II.
This royal stronghold, built by successive medieval kings over two centuries has seen more than its fair share of conflict and sieges. Learn how it was fought over in the English Civil War and came under bombardment during the First World War. And to complete your family day out in North Yorkshire, enjoy a hearty tea in the Master Gunner's House.
