From March to June our exhibition is about 'Women at Sea'. Despite folklore warning it was bad luck to have women onboard there are records of female sailors, captains and pirates going back over 2000 years. Come along and learn more about these pioneers that bring us right up to the next generation of female Sea Cadets entering the maritime world.

At any time, visit our 'Sea Wall Heritage Trail' around the Marine Drive. 29 history information 'Portholes' on a 1.5km trail starting in the North or South Bay.  Click here for more information.

 At any time, visit our 'History Box' opposite the harbour. The old red BT phone box is open 24 hours a day 365 days a year, has pictures and an audio guide about Scarborough's history.
