Well if you're doing Scarborough, there's lots to do and see nearby - a few miles up the coast the lovely Robin Hood's Bay (little fishing village down a steep hill, hidden in the cliffs - http://www.discoveryorkshirecoast.com/robin_hoods_bay.htm
). And a couple oif miles further north the very lovely Whitby, very atmospheric, especially the ruined Abbey overlooking the cliffs. If you ever enjoyed Heartbeat on telly (the village, if not the acting and plots) then the locations are just a few miles in to the moors.
Castle Howard is on your way (assuming you're doing M1/AI then A64, not some strange route over the Humber Bridge).
What do you want from your trip - ruined churches and abbeys, busy seasides, zoos, museums and theme parks, great country side - North Yorkshire has it all.
mmm.... no connection to the North Yorkshire tourist authorities just in case the forum police start twitching...
And then there's York of course.
(sorry, 12 years living in York seems to have bubbled to the surface - I thought 10 years down here had cured me)
