Scarborough Castle and its collection

Scarborough Castle

Scarborough Castle defends a prominent headland between two bays, with sheer drops to the sea and only a narrow landward approach. Specially contructed viewing platforms on the battlements offer panoramic views. The site's 3,000 year history is explored in interactive displays in the restored Master Gunner's House, accompanied by artefacts from each period of Scarborough's past. Less mobile visitors can enjoy a groundfloor touch-screen virtual tour of the displays as well as virtual views reproducing those from the raised platforms.

    Me and my husband visited Scarborough castle during our holiday. They had a knight battle event taking place. We had a great time watching the performances and taking in the lovley views from the castle. I had a picture request for the Knights and jester for a school project which required their photo taken with a rubber duck 🙈. All of those asked really made the effort. Also at the end the Knights all posed for who ever wanted a photo. They took the time and gave everyone the opportunity to get a great pic. CHEESE! 🤣 No charge eighther like some places do. I thought it was lovely gesture. Great show. The jester was so funny the highlight for me. Nothing was too much trouble. They just wanted everyone to have a good time. Which we totally did 😁
