Scarborough Hotels, Events and Attractions from the 1960's

A Hotel in Scarborough

Crown Spa in the 1960's

 

From time to time we all complain about how things are not as good as when we were young.

The tourism trade continues to be a major part of the local economy despite the current affordability of foreign holidays. While weekend and mid-week-break trade are tending to replace the traditional week-long family holiday, the beaches and attractions are always very busy throughout summer – and increasingly busier in the winter months when Scarborough is often seen as a peaceful bolt-hole from cities such as London, Manchester and Leeds. Confidence in the hospitality industry is high, evidenced by major refits in recent years to the likes of the Crown Spa Hotel.

To have a look at the nostalgic past have a look at the link below for the Yorkshire Film Archive.
