Scarborough is located on the North Sea coast of North Yorkshire and was historically part of the North Riding of Yorkshire. The town is between 10 to 230 feet above sea level, with the highest part of the town situated on steep limestone cliffs.
The town has two bays; the South Bay glitters with amusement arcades, ice cream parlors, and shellfish stalls, while the North Bay is quieter and more natural. Scarborough is perhaps the oldest seaside resort in England, with its roots in the 1600s when people flocked for the health-giving properties of the spa waters.
Skegness is on the Lincolnshire coast on the North Sea, around 43 miles east of Lincoln. The locals hold an annual carnival in August, a week-long affair that incorporates the whole town. Aside from the resorts and spas, Skegness is home to the Natureland Seal Sanctuary, which attracts thousands of visitors each year.
Blackpool is on the Irish Sea coast and is known for Blackpool Pleasure Beach, an old-school amusement park with vintage wooden roller coasters. The 1894 Blackpool Tower still houses a circus as well as a glass viewing platform and a ballroom.
