Why Scarborough is The Perfect Place to Visit
Here at The Kensington, we are very proud of our town and what is has to offer its visitors; from its beautiful sandy beaches, stunning coastline, parks, gardens and historic castle to the penny arcades, fairground rides, boat trips and of course, fish and chips, with the BEST FISH & CHIP SHOP in Scarborough just 5 mins walk from us.
Scarborough has long reigned as one of the most visited in the country, in fact Scarborough and Whitby always rank as UK’s top two holiday destinations for the summer, but not only that, Scarborough was the very first seaside resort in Britain, with thousands flocking every year to soak up the summer vibes. Scarborough is the perfect seaside place to experience, as it’s devoid of the overrun beauty spots, busy beaches, and boot-hardened footpaths of the south, with stretches of wild and beautiful coastline all to yourself. With unspoilt rural landscapes, picture-postcard market towns, sandy beaches, no wonder so many of us want a piece of it.
Split across two bays, there is so much to explore in lovely Scarborough, with having two bays for the price of one, it’s almost two entirely different experiences rolled up in one destination, with the hustle and bustle of the town, harbour, amusements on the South Bay and the North Bay offering a large stretch of sand, cafes, and a generally more relaxed tone.
The variety shows and endless performances by 60s and 70s tribute bands are balanced by the Art Deco Stephen Joseph theatre and cinema where Sir Alan Ayckbourn directs and premieres his own plays. Scarborough really does offer a rich blend of heritage and contemporary attractions.
The Kensington Guesthouse is marked here on this map, which also shows the Railway Station and some Scarborough landmarks such as Peasholm Park, the castle and the open-air theatre - all within walking distance.
