With its stunning location and panoramic views over the dramatic Yorkshire coastline, the castle will be the pinnacle of your visit to Scarborough

Head through the imposing gatehouse and step into 3,000 years of history. Explore the castle headland with the audio tour and gain fascinating insight into its past, from Iron Age settlements to the Roman signal station and medieval chapel.

The castle's heyday was in the 12th century when it was developed by Henry II and King John.
This mighty castle has seen action in some of England's most defining battles.

It was twice besieged by Parliamentarians in the Civil War, and has defended king and country from the Jacobites, Napoleon and the German Kaiser, when it came under bombardment during the First World War.

Fuel up for your adventure with a locally-made treat in our coffee shop at the Master Gunner's House, and enjoy uninterrupted views across the castle grounds.

We serve hot and cold snacks, tea, and coffee and of course, scrumptious cakes.

On your way out, why not browse the gifts in the castle shop, and take home a little memento of your visit?
