Scarborough Castle started life as an Iron Age Fort, was occupied by the Romans, became a Viking settlement and reached its heyday under Henry II!

Now it's waiting for you with its stunning location and panoramic views over the dramatic Yorkshire coastline: Scarborough castle will be the pinnacle of your visit to Scarborough! Come and see significant objects from its immense years of history, play on the grassy headland, and partake in a tea in the Master Gunner's house! Lovely!

Learn how it was fought over in the English Civil War and came under bombardment during the First World War! There's a rich and thrilling military history associated with this fortress so there's loads to learn and look at plus a great imaginative atmosphere for the smalls. The 16 race site includes a Roman Signal Station and it's also the only play in the area where you can see both the north and south bays of Scarborough simultaneously. Bring a camera!
