Scarborough Harbour...

Scarborough's heart...

Scarborough Harbour has been the town's heart for as long as it's existed. Scarborough expanded from the Harbour and the mighty Castle Headland. This is the old town and this is the very soul of Scarborough.

Plenty to discover...

The Harbour is made up of three piers with an outer and inner harbour. The outer harbour is used by leisure vessels and the inner harbour by fishing and passenger vessels.

Get on the water...

You can sail out on Scarborough's Pleasure Steamers Regal Lady & Coronia, take a Speedboat ride, go on the mini pirate ship Hispaniola, take a boat out to see the seals or go on a chartered fishing trip.

The Fishing Industry...

Although the fishing industry had declined over recent years, there is still a small working fleet sailing in and out of Scarborough and visiting vessels especially Scottish still use the harbour to land their catch.

The historic lighthouse...

The Lighthouse is situated on Vincent Pier. The original lighthouse dated from around 1804 but it was severely damaged by German Shells in 1914 and had to be rebuilt. It is operational and flashes a couple of hours each side of High Water.

Great from every angle...

For a breathtaking view over Scarborough Harbour, walk up the castle headland paths and take in the sight over the harbour and South Bay.
