Discover Scarborough

Scarborough is the original seaside resort and here at The Headlands Hotel, 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.

There are many wonderful places to eat and drink and we are always happy to recommend where to go (and where to avoid) and we can sort out your reservations too.

The Headlands Hotel is wonderfully placed to explore all of Scarborough and what it has to offer. We are in the heart of the North Bay so you are a short five minute walk to the North Bay Beach and its attractions.
