Harbour View, Scarborough

4.8
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.

  • Lovely breakfast & friendly staff. It was busy when we went on May bank holiday Monday, we waited a bit but we were told when we ordered we’d have to wait. We weren’t bothered & sat drinking our drinks, we were then offered another drink for our wait. Will certainly go again & recommend.
  • The best fish and chips ever! The place was amazing, you can the pier and the city at the same time, the staffs are also friendly especially for tourist. Definitely willl come back!
  • Great food (Best fish and chips EVER exclaimed my son), coupled with friendly staff. Very child friendly. Don't be put off by the exterior!
  • Great breakfast and value. Will visit again soon. Just what was needed to warm up after the Boxing Day beach football match!!! Keep up the great work!!
  • 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!
