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.

Length

The length (in miles) of a walk is an approximation of the overall of the walking guide, not a measure of the distance "as the crow flies" between any two points. This is based on the GPX file that was created when the author walked the route and rounded to the nearest mile.length

Grade (Boots)

The grade of a walk is an indicator of how difficult it is to walk. This does not take into account the walk length but does suggest how challenging the walk will be. An easy walk, graded as 1 (and shown as 1 walking boot) indicates a walk that is essentially flat, has no sharp hills to climb, has no stiles or other obstacles, is easy to navigate (probably along a well-worn path) and is suitable for most levels of fitness. Do be aware that the level of stamina required will vary and you should only walk within your limits - the indication of walk length will help with this. A difficult walk, graded as 5 (and represented by 5 boots) indicates a walk that is strenuous and involves steep ascents and/or descents. It may be technically challenging involving difficult terrain or obstacles.

Please note that the grading for walks is subjective and open to interpretation and should only be used as a guide when selecting a walk.
