Scarborough Old Town Trail

Old Town Heritage & Folklore Trail

Find out about the history and heritage of Scarborough's Old Town - from the Romans and the Middle Ages, to the modern seaside town we know today.

Discover the folklore and superstitions associated with different areas of the town - ghosts, ghouls, fishermen's superstitions, pirates and smugglers all add their own spin on the town's history. With many stories passed down through generations, parts of this trail have been built purely from local knowledge - you won't find that on any other Scarborough tour!

Peasholm Fairy Trail & Enchanted Glen

Peasholm Nature & FAIRY Trail

Perfect for kids, and big kids! Follow the enchanted woodland trail around Peasholm Park and Glen, look out for the troll bridges, pixie loot and fairy hideouts. Unlock a whole host of imaginative stories and fables, and if you're lucky enough you might just stumble on some little gifts left by fairies of the enchanted wood.

There's also a wildlife survey and activity pack, teaching youngsters about the nature, animals and birds we regularly see in the park.

Take twists and turns along the sea front and through the cobbles of the old town to discover where real pirates and smugglers walked.
