Places to Visit

Pinewood’s owners, Dave and Kerry, and their family, believe that they are extremely lucky to live in Scarborough, and feel that their customers will enjoy the many attractions that Scarborough has to offer, and also places of interest nearby (of course, they are slightly biased, as they have lived in Scarborough all their lives!).


Scarborough has 2 wonderful beaches, divided by the castle headland, with the stunning castle looking down onto them. There’s fun to be had by all on the south beach with its many amusement arcades, shops and of course the traditional fish and chips restaurants and the donkey rides. You can have a trip on a pirate ship or take to the waves in a speed boat. The north bay is the quieter beach, but you can still have fun making sand castles, take a ride on the miniature railway, and enjoy an ice-cream. If it’s raining there’s also the indoor swimming pool or the cinema, as well as bowling. Peasholm Park is a beautiful attraction; where you can feed the ducks, ride a peddle boat swan, have a round of pitch and putt, or watch the famous miniature war ships battle. The Sealife Centre is a great place to visit, and there’s plenty of shops and entertainment.
