Lonely Planet review

Scarborough is not exclusively about sandcastles, seaside rock candy and walks along the promenade. The massive medieval keep of Scarborough Castle occupies a commanding position atop its headland. Legend has it that Richard I loved the views from here so much that his ghost just keeps coming back. Take a walk out to the edge of the cliffs, where you can see the 2000-year-old remains of a Roman signal station . Clearly the Romans appreciated this viewpoint, too.
