For me when I think of my childhood there is one location that always seems to stick out and that is Scarborough.
It was one of my families favourite places and throughout the years has held a special meaning. It was a regular thing in my family to jump in the car and drive for over an hour and half until we hit the east coast. We normally justified these trips claiming we had cravings for ice cream and fish and chips. We had our favourite places to visit and our favourite times to visit.
We have been visiting the east coast for many years and in more recent years Scarborough has held more special meanings, it's where we laid my father to rest, where we introduced my Niece to her first knickerbocker glory and where I got engaged.
What draws us to this particular part of the coast is that even though it is changing to younger audiences it still has some traditional elements. You can enjoy a ice cream in a 1950's themed ice cream parlour, travel up to the town via a cliff lift and even visit an open air theatre and see some amazing acts.
I may be biased in my opinion and no matter what will always love this part of the coast but I believe if you are heading to Yorkshire be sure to make this a stop on your journey. It just screams the traditional British seaside town we all know and love.
