Scarborough harbour has undergone major regeneration including the new Albert Strange Pontoons, a more pedestrian-friendly promenade, street lighting and seating.
The North Bay has traditionally been the more peaceful end of the resort and is home to Peasholm Park whose attractions include an artificial boating lake, a putting green and a champion tree walk, the park was restored in June 2007 to its Japanese-themed glory, complete with reconstructed pagoda. During the summer season Peasholm Park features a mock maritime battle (based on the Battle of the River Plate) re-enacted on the boating lake with large model boats and fireworks.
The North Bay Railway is a miniature railway which runs from the park to the Sea Life Centre at Scalby Mills.
The North Bay is linked to the South Bay by the Marine Drive, an extensive Victorian promenade, built around the base of the headland. Overlooking both bays is Scarborough Castle.
Both bays have popular sandy beaches and numerous rock-pools at low tide for the family to explore.
South Cliff Promenade is situated above the Spa and South Cliff Gardens, commanding excellent views of the South Bay and old town and from which many iconic postcard views are taken. Its splendid Regency and Victorian terraces are still intact and the mix of quality hotels and desirable apartments form a backdrop to the South Bay. The ITV television drama The Royal and its recent spin-off series, The Royal Today, are filmed in the area.
The South Bay has the largest illuminated "Star Disk" anywhere in the UK. It is 85 feet (26 m) across and is fitted with subterranean lights representing the 42 brightest stars and major constellations that can be seen from Scarborough in the northern skies.
Seafest an annual festival takes place at West Pier and around the harbour area in July. It celebrates the region's connection to fishing and hosts the region's biggest gathering of folk singers, shantymen and musicians. So far the programme has included the cream of the folk song, maritime and shanty world in the United Kingdom. It has also drawn artists from other nations including Senegal, Sicily, Canada, Éire, Luxembourg, Germany, Holland, Brittany and the USA.
The festival is based around Scarborough's West Pier and North Wharf where you will find a maritime themed exhibition, The Cropton Brewery Real Ale Bar and Children's Entertainment and the festival main stage. In addition there is the well-known 'Sea Fish Cookery' marquee where visiting chefs demonstrate the art of sea - food preparation.
The town has the UK's first free Wi-Fi seafront and harbour area and one of Europe's fastest internet connections 100MB
