Summer Events In Scarborough.

Scarborough is the original seaside resort. So come the summer months the town is pretty much taken over by visiting tourists. (plus us residents that enjoy acting like tourists!)


In a bid to continue with promoting Scarborough, I’ve compiled a list of things/events happening in the town over the summer months. There’s a variety for everyone, from families to just adults. Hopefully this will be of a benefit to those visiting and maybe residents too.

If you’re looking for places to eat, drink and generally visit, please do view the tab above labelled ‘VISIT SCARBOROUGH‘ where you’ll find posts/reviews on places I’ve visited and enjoyed.
