Description

Join us for a unique walking event at Scarborough SEAFEST to launch Seaside Walk Week and help raise funds for the Family Holiday Association and the Rotary Club of Scarborough Cavaliers.

Starting from West Pier the walk will head down South Bay towards Scarborough Spa and back; prepare to meet all sorts of creatures that live along the foreshore from crabs, to fish to seaweed. Keep your eyes peeled for 165 million year old dinosaur footprints in Scarborough's jurassic rocks and bring your wellies for the chance to do some rock-pooling. The walk and rock-pooling will be guided by our friends at Hidden Horizons.

The walk will proceed at a gentle pace and is ideal for families of all ages. It will finish back at West Pier where the Scarborough Seafest celebrations will be in full swing. Expect live cookery demonstrations from celebrated Yorkshire chefs, street theatre acts, helicopters displays, food, music and more.

Once you've fully immersed yourself in all things Seafest, head over to Scarborough SEA LIFE sanctuary where you can explore all of the sea creatures that live on this underwater world in an exclusive out-of-hours visit from 5-6pm.

All equipment is supplied but for the rock-pooling you will need wellies or old shoes, bare feet are not a good idea as the rocks are sharp and slippery.

The walk is also taking place on Saturday 22 July. If you would prefer to book for this date please click here.

TIMINGS: 9:30am for a 10:00am start. The walk and rock-pooling will last approx 2 hours. SEALIFE Sanctuary access available from 17.00-18.00pm.

Seaside Walk Week, organised by the Family Holiday Association, is a week of events celebrating the wonders of the British seaside, paying tribute to the magic of family holidays by the sea and encouraging the nation to explore the Great British coastline with family and friends.

As Britain’s first seaside resort, the North Yorkshire town of Scarborough is the natural choice for the launch of Seaside Walk Week 2017.

All income from walker registration will be split between the Family Holiday Association and the Rotary Club of Scarborough Cavaliers.

Our thanks to Hidden Horizons, Scarborough Borough Council, Scarborough SEAFEST, Scarborough Hospitality Association, Scarborough SEALIFE Sanctuary, Scarborough Spa and Welcome to Yorkshire without which the walks would not be possible.
