Harbour View, Scarborough

4.7
A large white lighthouse keeps watch at Harbour View. Here you'll find colorful seaside houses stacked on top of each other as well as many benches to sit on to watch boats, fishermen, and seagulls. Be sure to walk along both sides of the harbor, as their offerings differ greatly. One side is lined with cafes, ice cream shops, and pubs, the other features small fishing boats tethered to the dock. Watch for signage that outlines the harbor's historical significance as you walk along. Our Scarborough trip site makes visiting Harbour View and other Scarborough attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Excellent fish (as other reviews have said, this is as expected given the location on the pier), and friendly service. Great views of the harbor and castle. Quite a good lunch!
  • Had fish and chips here last week. I have to say that they were as good, if not better than any fish restaurant i've been to. I guess that being on a fish pier helps. You could tell it was really fresh.
  • The food is nice here and always freshly prepared. There is a good view from the balcon
  • It might be a bit awkward to find but the food is not bad at all and the customer service is fantastic!
  • Fantastic experience great breakfast and they do de-caf tea as well.
