A 2 mile circular walk around the Scarborough Headland. The walk starts on the car parking area alongside the North Bay before climbing up to towards the castle and then descending down the other side of the hill into the South Bay. The walk passes near Richard III house, before skirting the headland along Marine Drive which takes the walker back to the start.

The walk has several steep climbs and descents, but all the pavements are in good order. There are no gates, steps or stiles. Allow 1.5 hours.

Parking is available on Royal Albert Drive, or Marine Drive, which leads onto Royal Albert Drive. This is located in the North Bay of Scarborough, North Yorkshire. Parking is by meter per hour, so you need to bring money, if parking your car. Nearest post code YO12 7TY.
