Scarborough, a north English town that may or may not be associated with the song by Simon & Garfunkel. The town is situated on the North East coast of England in the county of North Yorkshire. As the self proclaimed capital of the said county, Scarborough may look as any working class town somewhere in England if it weren’t for the beach, castle and the nearby amazing landscapes of North Yorkshire Moors.
A former beach resort for the British population of slightly lower means than the upper class, Scarborough does have a large beach and for the very daring an opportunity to swim in the frigid North Sea. Even if the glamour days are pretty much gone, the town still holds on to the charm of a harbour with a beautiful promenade by the sea and the best fish & chips in the whole of UK, according to locals.
For a small, quaint town Scarborough has also whatever and an English town offers a tourist. Pubs, old, narrow streets, fish and chips and a northern accent worth studying. The locals are above friendly and chatty something you don’t easily find in the southern parts of England.
It does show a bit of economical neglect in some parts but that’s the locals’ problem isn’t it?
The Scarborough castle still dominates the view and the Grand Hotel is a living proof of the town’s former glory.
