How to get there
Airport: Leeds/Bradford (approx 1.5hrs drive): 134.0 km
Railway: Scarborough Train Station: 19.0 km
Ferry: Hull Ferry: 92.0 km
Public Transport - Train to Scarborough, X93 bus (Scarborough to Middlesbrough) from outside the train station. Get a fare to The Flask and make sure you get off there.
If you are travelling by car & using Sat-Nav it will take you off of the A171 & down the old road behind the Flask Inn. IGNORE IT. We are directly opposite the Flask Inn (on the opposite side of the A171) - you turn down the lane next to the bus stop. We are on the left at the bottom of the lane - take the first left into the parking area.
