“Not worth £12”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

this is over-rated and over-priced and also did not include car parking which was an extra £3. Would not recommend.

“Good way to pass a few hours”
Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

On our one day trip to Scarborough we decided to take our two young kids on the train in the morning and arrived at the station at Peasholm Park at around 11am.

1. Very quiet at this time, much quieter and no queuing than when we finished.
2. We spent 2 hours at the North Bay stop crabbing, exploring rock pools, climbing. Absolutely ace.
3. It's quicker to walk back to the Peasholm Park station then catch a train back, and you get to walk down the promenade.
4. Use the toilet before you go. We couldn't find any the other end
5. Lots to do at the Peasholm Park station, skywalks, etc ....as well as go to the park

Would, recommend as it got us to North Bay which was so quiet. You had it to yourself!
