Scarborough is a coastal resort town in the county of Yorkshire. The origin of the place is not known, but its ancient name Scearburg, is of Saxon derivation, with Scear or Scar, signifying a rock, while Burgh relates to a fortified place. The town is situated in the recess of a beautiful bay, on the shore of the North Sea, and the land rises from the shore in the form of an amphitheatre, ledge towering over ledge; and the concave slope of its semi-circular bay has a very picturesque appearance. To the east on the summit of a lofty promontory stand the ruins of the ancient castle, while in the hinterland are many rolling hills.

Yorkshire is one of the largest regions in England. From the mouth of the Tees to Flamborough Head the coast is bold and rocky; from Flamborough Head to Spurn Head it lies low. The interior presents the appearance of a great central valley stretching southeast to the Humber, and flanked on either side by heights - on the east by the Cleveland Hills and the Wolds, and on the west by the Pennine Range. Yorkshire is important as an agricultural, manufacturing, and mining county, and also relies on heavily on tourism.

Scarborough is within easy reach of spectacular North York Moors National Park, which features open moorland, intricate dales, beautiful woodland and spectacular coastline. There are short strolls and half day walks, some fully accessible paths and, if you want more of a challenge, there's the superb Cleveland Way National Trail, which you can enjoy in short circular walks as well as a long trail.
