Scarborough, North Yorkshire
A few Saturdays ago we took the train from York ...
You may not have known that it has the longest bench seat of any railway station in the world!
It's a popular tourist town with a large pedestrian shopping zone, and the Grand Hotel was finished in 1867. Anne Brontë died and was buried in Scarborough in the graveyard at this church:
The town is a few hundred feet above the beach:
The south and north bays are separated by the 12th-century Scarborough Castle ruin:
Near the graveyard and church we stumbled upon Paradise and the kids had a good roll down its hill:
As is typical for British weather, the day offered us sun, overcast, a downpour of rain, more sun, and more rain. Scarborough is a beautiful and fun place to visit.
