Scarborough, England

A card from Scarborough.

It is situated on the North Sea Coast of North Yorkshire in England and the largest holiday resort on the Yorkshire coast as well.
The most striking feature of the town's geography is a high rocky promontory pointing eastward into the North Sea. The promontory supports the 11th century ruins of Scarborough Castle and separates the sea front into a North Bay and a South Bay. Well, you can see the South Bay here.
You can also see the Peasholm Park (situated in the North Bay)
The Spa complex (top right corner) is home to the Scarborough Spa Orchestra, the last remaining seaside orchestra in the UK. The orchestra gives ten concerts every week during the summer months.
The Lighthouse you can see, is said to have become popular in the 19th century, both nationally and internationally.
