The main high street for shopping is Westborough, running into Newborough.
This is the place for all your main high street and chain stores. All the popular stores are there, including a Marks and Spencers, Matalan and TK Max.
Look out for the big Boyes store on Queen Street (on the left as you follow Newborough down towards the sea). It is a Scarborough 'institution' and well worth a look.
Here you will also find the Brunswick Shopping Centre - a very pleasant, covered shopping area, with many local high street stores, including a Debenhams department store. You can also park your car here. More about the Brunswick Shopping Centre.
Take a little time to explore a couple of the interesting side streets off the main high street in Scarborough town centre (Westborough).
We really like the little shops on Bar Street and Huntriss Row.
These are lovely little boutique-style shops - with a real air of luxury - lots to look at...
...whether window-shopping, browsing or buying..!
We love to visit Scarborough Market at the Scarborough Market Hall, at St Helen's Square (on the left, just as you are leaving Scarborough town centre and heading down towards Eastborough, towards the sea).
There is a normal 'everyday' market on the upper floor, but the more interesting shopping is at the market vaults underneath the main market hall.
This is an attractive shopping area - each little vaulted room houses a separate independent shop.
There are quite a variety of little shops here - all intriguing to browse!
Holistic and New Age Stores
even a tempting Cafe area
For us, this is one of the most interesting and unique shopping areas in Scarborough - certainly something that little bit different from your 'same-old, same-old', main stream, high street stores.
It's quite a little emporium, so do take the time to have a browse, and hopefully find that unique and interesting souvenir of your visit, to take home
One of the most interesting shopping streets is Eastborough (going into Newborough). This is the street leading up from the Foreshore and sea front, up to Scarborough town centre 'proper'.
It's quite a steep street, and it can be a long haul up, at the end of a long day... so it's lovely to have something interesting to look at on the way up.
A very tasty fudge shop! Mmmm!!
Some of the shops you can enjoy on the way up are:
Rock and Candy Shop
Donut and Waffle Shop
A delicious Fudge Shop - tried and tested - v. tasty! (See the picture above)
Rock and Gem Shop
...and lots more...!
There are also plenty of little restaurants, cafes, tea shops and fish and chip shops up here - perfect for stopping for a rest... and enjoying the views over the bay.
The Seafront Shops
All along the sea front (quite separate from Scarborough town centre, by virtue of a rather steep hill) are your usual seaside gift shops, candy floss, fish and chips, ice cream and entertainments...
In short, everything you could want or need from your time at the seaside. So whether you want a bucket and spade, a souvenir or gift for Granny, or just to sit and relax with fish and chips or even a glass of wine, you will find somewhere along the sea front to suit you.
This is a great place to stroll and window shop - always with a view of the sea! Fantastic!
