The Kensington Guest House is wonderfully placed to explore all of Scarborough and what it has to offer. We are in the heart of the North Bay, so you are just a mere 10 mins walk to most places, 10 mins from the Town Centre.
We know Scarborough like the back of our hands, so we know the best places to go and where to avoid, please don’t hesitate to ask us and we will be more than happy to help you make the most of your time in Scarborough.
We are within walking distance of one of the best beaches on the Yorkshire Coast, The Blue Flag-awarded North Bay beach where if the waves are right, you could try a spot of surfing.
We are just a 2-minute walk from Peasholm Park, just 10 mins from Scarborough Cricket Club and the wonderful Open-Air Theatre, the largest of its kind in Europe, where the likes of Kylie Minogue, Christina Aguilera and Bryan Adams have played.
Scarborough’s South Bay is only a 15-minute walk away and has all you would expect from a British seaside town – amusement arcades, a fairground, in Summer, donkey rides. The South Bay is also home to a working harbour, a marina full of yachts, the Grand Hotel (once the largest in Europe) and at the end of the bay, Scarborough Spa. Visible from both bays and towering over the headland is Scarborough Castle just 10 mins walk from our Guest House. More details about our perfect location can be found HERE.
Parking is street parking, where you will have no problem parking either directly outside or very near to our Guest House and we offer all our guests, free of charge, parking permits to cover all your stay.
We like to think that the main appeal of this type of accommodation is the homely feel - so book your stay, relax, and take in the hospitable atmosphere... and don't be afraid to ask if there is anything you need to make your stay with us even more enjoyable.
