Scarborough - Photo by Tom Tolkien. With the Easter holidays fast approaching, we thought we’d help you out with some local ideas to keep all the family entertained. As a county, Yorkshire is vast, so where to start?

Well, we’ve plumped for Scarborough! The beautiful, historical, fun-filled beach resort on the East Coast. Two bays with sandy beaches, donkey rides, a 12th Century Castle, the Japanese style landscaped park and gardens at Peasholm Park, the Sealife Centre, not to mention that Scarborough is home to the ‘UKs Number 1’ fish and chip shop – what’s not to love?
