Scarborough has had a long running tradtion on Shrove Tuesday which has been running at least since 1903. It has been thought that local fisherman who were getting rid of the ropes and nets not fit for fishing to children who would then use the ropes to skip.
Since at least 1853 a person has run a bell at noon on Shrove Tuesday, which is though to signal to people they should begin pancake making when the tradition began. Nowadays it is run to tell people to start skipping. The area used for skipping is closed (foreshore) for traffic for the event these days.

Planning a holiday or day trip to the Scarborough beach, we give you a run down on what to find on the North and South Bay. If you feel up for the task you can actually walk from one headland to the other, roughly 3 miles from the Scarborough Spa to Scalby Mills. If you’re quick at walking a trip there and back should take you roughly 60 minutes.
The South Bay, is the more commercial side, with amusements, gift shops, ice-cream, fish & chips and other typical beach side wares. This beach is usually the busiest out of the two.
The North Bay, is the “quieter side”, it has had recent redevelopment, with beach huts, a bar, small supermarket. Due to the less commercialised aspect you can more than easily find a space to sit down and enjoy the beach and weather.
With a brand new fleet of 200cc Honda powered SODI GT3 karts and 160cc for juniors be prepared for speed. With a host of events available Scarborough Karting can cater for large or small events. Birthday parties, stag and hen, corporate events or arrive and drive are all on offer with food and beverages available at the pit stop café.
With state of the art timing systems mean your laps will be timed with the accuracy of 1/1000th of a second and with speeds of over 40MPH the track will test your driving skills to the max.
Top 10 free things to do in Scarborough
They usually say there isn’t a free lunch, but we have managed to come up with a list of 10 free things to do in Scarborough:
10.Scarborough Art Gallery
Scarborough Art Gallery has free exhibits throughout the year, just simply walk in. The best way to get to it from the Crown Spa Hotel is to go across the Spa Bridge, carry on until you get to Bar Street, turn left before you go up it. Then continue on to the roundabout and take the second exit on the left and follow the path around.
7. Events throughout the year
Scarborough plays hosts to several paid events that have free events within them including Coastival, Peasholm Park events and music events. Your best bet is to look ahead and see what you maybe interested in and plan accordingly. We recommend our Facebook Page which we will be posting events for the coming week every Monday.
6. Peasholm Park
Peasholm Park has a tranquil lake, there are plenty of places to sit and enjoy it. There is an island in the centre of the lake and a bridge leading across to it allows the visitor to explore the island with a path leading round it or by climbing up to the top with its impressive pagoda. The park has been designed with an oriental theme and there is much evidence of this as you wander through its pathways. It is open 24 hours a day for 365 days a year.
5. Scarborough Mere / Oliver’s Mount
Not to be confused with Throxenby Mere. It is now part of the Oliver’s Mount Country Park, and is managed by the Scarborough Mere Angling Club as a fishing lake, with the southern end used by water-skiers. Just a short drive up Oliver’s Mount and near the war memorial will give you a full view of Scarborough, which cannot be seen anywhere else.
4. Raincliffe Woods
Dalby Forest would of made it on the list for obvious reason but as you have to pay £5 to enter, Raincliffe Woods made the grade instead.
Situated about 2 minutes from Scalby Road, and with Throxenby Mere right next to it, you can enjoy a walk around, without spending a penny.
3. Hairy Bob’s Skate Park
More for the younger generation. Hairy Bob’s Skate Park, was built from the ground up from local bikers and skaters having full involvement in the development of the park. Getting exactly what they wanted from it.
2. Cinder Track
The Scarborough Cinder Track, starting from Scarborough to Whitby, is enjoyed by walkers and cyclists throughout the year. Stretching for 23 miles, it was the old train link, that was removed as it was thought not to be of use anymore, due to the ever increasing number of cars being bought.
1. Scarborough North or South beach
Pretty obvious one, but one which you don’t have to spend a penny enjoying. With recent blue flag awards for clean water, either beach is perfect for a family.
However we cannot guarantee that you won’t spend money on ice cream or fish & chips.
The area is a mixed woodland area designated as Planted Ancient Woodland, and combined with Forge Valley Woods is a site of special scientific interest.
There are many paths, tracks and bridleways through the small woods which many residents of Scarborough use for mountain biking, dog walking and Sunday strolls. Throxenby Mere a popular place for fisherman is located at the foot of the woods.
Deer, badgers, squirrels, frogs, toads, foxes and all kinds of birds can be seen in the woods.
