A 5 day trip to Scarborough visiting magnificent Burton Constable Hall and through the scenic Yorkshire Moors

Scarborough

Britain's first seaside resort, has been welcoming visitors for over 360 years and is still as popular as ever. Scarborough is a great a place to stay  with the safe, sandy, accredited North Bay Beach and South Bay Beach being broken by a rocky headland on which stands a reminder of the past, the historic 12 century Scarborough Castle.

Enjoy the promenade in the attractive Belvedere Gardens, browse the many & varied shops or take the cliff lift down to the golden sands of South Bay.

 

Burton Constable Hall

Burton Constable Hall is a large Elizabethan country house that has been home to the Constable family for over 700 years. The hall, a Grade I listed building, is one of the most fascinating English country houses to survive complete with its historic collections and is set in 300 acres of parkland designed by Capability Brown.

 

Whitby

This is a lovely place. The little River Esk runs through a deep valley which broadens out as it comes near the harbour… The houses of the old town are all red-roofed and seem piled up one after the other anyhow…Right over the town is the ruin of the Abbey, a noble ruin of immense size". Such was Bram Stoker's description of Whitby in his novel, Dracula published in 1897 and the town is little changed since then. The East Cliff is home to the ruins of Whitby Abbey, where Caedmon, the earliest recognised English poet, lived. The fishing port developed during the Middle Ages, supporting important herring and whaling fleets and was (along with the nearby fishing village of Staithes) where Captain Cook learned seamanship.

 

North Yorkshire Moors Railway

The North Yorkshire Moors Railway provides some 18 miles of preserved steam railway running through the spectacular scenery of the North Yorkshire Moors between Whitby and Pickering. Trains are mostly steam-hauled; however sometimes heritage diesel is used. At the height of the running timetable, trains depart hourly from each station.
