A Guide To Pubs In Scarborough

Updated on March 29, 2014

This lens is all about pubs in Scarborough.

The town of Scarborough, UK is a small town with a very high number of public houses, bars and clubs. Going on size the town has a lot more than it should and this lens has been created to show the best of them and eventually all of them.

The towns bars and pubs enjoy a steady trade throughout the year as the student population keeps them going through the off season. During peak season pubs in Scarborough are busier and the most popular involve a queue to get in. The big chain pubs have taken over somewhat during the last few years but surely this can't last, Scarborough pubs are all very different. If you fancy a nice quiet drink you can take your pick from some good old English public houses or dance the night away in the towns so-called super pubs.

Pub Crawls In Scarborough.

Scarborough has an excellent reputation for pub crawls as the town has so many pubs and bars so close together. Most in the town center are within 1 minute of each other with those on the edge of town a couple of minutes apart.

Pub crawls in Scarborough are varied in size and number of pubs.

Long Crawl 1.

Not for the faint hearted!

This one is more of an afternoon into evening crawl as it takes in 15 pubs and ends up at a nightclub. As pub crawls go there is no plan but all the pubs listed, visited in order, will lead into the town center nightclubs. This crawl takes in more of the traditional type pub with a few bars nearer the end.

Start Time 1800

This is just a guide and if you are planning to take in all the pubs on this route I would recommend around 15-20 minutes in each. If you find a pub you really enjoy, stay and just miss out the next one or two.
