High up on the headland, towering above Scarborough are the impressive ruins of Scarborough Castle.
|Worth the uphill walk|
One bright afternoon last week, we took a trip up to the English Heritage site to see what was on offer, and it ended up being a lovely afternoon out. There isn’t really any easy parking for the Castle, but we were able to park in the graveyard at the bottom of the hill, and take a peruse of Anne Bronte’s grave on the walk up. Be warned, the walk is steep, and once you actually get up to the gate of the castle prepared to be out of breath.

If I was to go back, I would most likely pack a picnic and thoroughly enjoy the space that’s on offer up there. It’s a perfect way to spend an afternoon, with or without children, and there’s plenty to occupy everyone. If you are ever in the area, Scarborough castle has to be on your list of places to see.
