Scarborough is a northern seaside town in Yorkshire, whose golden beaches are looked over by old houses and hotels. The town was made popular in the ballad Scarborough Fair, a tune thought to date back to the Middle Ages, which made reference to an annual event which spanned from the 13th to 18th century.
Scarborough is well suited to tourists, with games arcades and other traditional beach fare on offer. Though many of the people you see in Scarborough are visiting tourists, it is estimated about 50,000 live there.
Many parts of the town may seem modern, but in fact relics from the Bronze Age have been found in the area. Its seaside location also meant Scarborough was important throughout history for roles in trade, smuggling and defence.
The town has good transport links with train lines connecting it to Leeds, York, Manchester and Liverpool.
