    Find Family Days Out In Scarborough

    Take a walk along Yorkshire’s Dinosaur and enjoy all the different things to do in Scarborough.

    If your child is dinosaur mad then they’ll love paying a visit to this hotbed of Jurassic and Cretaceous fossils. Get your fossil brush and magnifying glass and go fossil hunting along the coast before taking your discoveries to the Rotunda Museum, where you can go back in time 165 million years to when dinosaurs footprints were all that walked on the land.

    Scarborough family days out would not be the same without attempting to tackle the Terror Tower! Not for the faint hearted this nail biting attraction features over 11 different scenes from movies covering two stories in two buildings. Sound effects, animatronics and actors will bring the action to life guaranteeing a terrifying and thrilling experience!

     Wind down on a relaxing Donkey Ride over on South Bay Beach. Meet the friendly animals that will take you for a short ride over the soft sands during the summer months.

     

    Scarborough Castle has panoramic views over the dramatic Yorkshire coastline and started life as an Iron Age Fort. Over 2,500 years it became a Viking Settlement and then played a role in the First World War. A free audio tour will take you through the many journeys of the past and there are artifacts to discover along the way!
