While in the last few weeks of this year at York, I decided with some other flatmates to visit out flatmate Emily while she was at home in Scarborough. I was keen to see what it would be like as I’ve heard so much about it. Phrases I had heard in the past to describe Scarbs were somewhere along the lines of ‘line at the job centre,’ ‘shit hole’ and ‘too touristy’. Having been there and back I can tell you Scarborough is wonderful. There wasn’t many people when I went but the two shores are beautiful and there’s plenty of greenery. I mean take a look at the pictures and judge for yourself. Thank you to Emily I had a great day, especially renting the paddle boat at the chinese themed park.
They have little stalls were they sell fresh sea food caught the same day!
The last ‘House 8 Roadtrip’ (House 8 was the name of my university flat) was to Harrogate, a very posh spa town. Being a spa town means that it has Roman like baths, and was were people would be sent if they were unwell to get better supposedly due to the charm of the place. It wasn’t my favourite place we visited probably due to the nasty weather. However if driving by it’s definitely worth having a little walk around as there are some beautiful buildings. I really liked the main park with a pine forest and the gallery which changes it’s exhibition. It’s free to get into both of those.
