Things to do in Scarborough - Heritage Trail

This mega trail has something for all ages - its quite a big trail, so should take you at least a couple of hours to complete. Starting on Eastborough, the heart of the Old Town, you'll wander down to the seafront learning about the history and heritage, as well as hearing about the pirates, smugglers and other folklore stories from days gone by. Once you've heard about the seaside traditions, and what made Scarborough the first seaside town in the Victorian era, you'll head along Foreshore Road - stopping at key locations such as the lighthouse and piers along the way. Then work your way up to the castle, where you'll discover what brought the earliest settlements to Scarborough in the days of Romans. The trail is a loop, so you'll come back down towards the market area, before ending where you started.

Here are a few snippets of what you can expect to find out:

  • Smugglers and Pirates - the routes they used to take, underground tunnels and secret hideouts

  • Ghosts and ghouls - we have several ghostly stories in the old town

  • History and heritage - from fishing and ship building, to seaside traditions

  • Superstitions and folklore - our old fishermen were a superstitious bunch, find out about some of the quirky things they believed in, and learn about the sea monsters that kept them so terrified

  • Our oldest buildings, and earliest settlements

Scarborough Ghost Tour

Stand outside the haunted locations, and see for yourself what ghouls are hidden within!

The first section of the ghost tour is completely free, so you can enjoy a little taster of some of the town's famous ghost stories.

Find out which local lass was strangled on the beach, and the multiple locations her apparition continues to haunt. Read about the hauntings of old buildings, the local witches, a haunted school and the smugglers who still guard their treasure.... if you dare!
