The local area
Scarborough has a rich heritage that encompasses Stone and Bronze Age settlement, Roman and Saxon presence and Viking invasion. It has a long history as a fishing port and tourist destination, with the railway between Scarborough and York opening the town up as a seaside resort. Tourism continues to play a major part in Scarborough’s economy, while printing and creative industries also have an important role. The ruins of Scarborough Castle loom over town, while the Open Air Theatre, Rotunda Museum and Scarborough Spa are among the other attractions.
There are a range of good schools in the area for parents with children to take into consideration, including Brompton and Sawdon Primary, Lindhead School and Hertford Vale C of E.
