Scarborough



I love Scarborough, I’ve been loads of times before when I was little and not much had changed since the last time I’d been, maybe eight years ago.  (Except they’ve changed the swans to dragons at Peasholm Park.)  I went on the day that Boro got promoted to the Premier League last week; my boyfriend supports them and they’re technically my home team, so I was hoping they would win.


Places to visit in Scarborough:
Peasholm Park


Peasholm Park is a park in the middle of Scarborough near to the seafront.  It has a lake where you can go around on a pedalo swan dragon and you can get to the island in the middle via a bridge.  We peddled around the island twice before returning our dragon and walking over to the middle where you’ll find a Japanese themed garden area, a waterfall which you can see from the water, picnic area and fighting geese.  There’s a bandstand in the middle of the water and model boats, although I’m not sure if they’re still used anymore.  Also, they have a mini putting green just across from the boats.


North Bay Railway

The railway station is across the road from Peasholm Park; you can get the miniature train to the North Bay and back again through a tunnel that used to terrify me when I was little, even though it’s actually tiny!  At the other end, there’s mini golf (which we didn’t play because it was too windy) and the beach.  It was freezing so we got the train back and headed for the arcades.

The Arcades and Harbour

We had fish and chips in a cafĂ© on the sea front and had a quick walk around the harbour.  They had a Ferris wheel and other rides set out along the path.  There are so many different arcades along the sea front; we went in quite a few and I ended up losing most of our 2ps.  I even got turned away from one because they said that I needed my ID to play the roulette wheel, apparently!
