Senate weekend in Scarborough
Ey Up Lads and Lasses, what’s tha doin on furst weekend of July 2019? ‘Appen tha mite cum tut paddle in’t sea in’t East Riding if tha’s got nowt on.
We have reserved some rooms in two family-run hotels – Chapel House Hotel and 17 West Street (www.thechapelhousehotel.co.uk and www.17weststreet.co.uk) with all meals being taken at the Chapel House. The rooms are £70 a night whether for twin/double or single occupancy. There are a couple of triple rooms as well!! If you are on a budget or fancy a more luxurious stay, please visit www.scarborough.co.uk and book your accommodation directly (please note – you will be responsible for your own transport arrangements if not staying at one of the above hotels).
Friday night will be a delicious Fish & Chip buffet in the Chapel House Hotel, time to catch up with friends and relax after your journey. There is a bar and Graeme might be persuaded to take the hardier guests on a pub tour of some of the local venues..
Saturday morning will include a visit to the grave of Ann Bronte and a self-guided audio tour around Scarborough Castle. This will be followed by a tasty lunch before spending the afternoon at Peasholm Park where the choice is yours – hire a dragon pedalo, take a trip on the Swan boat, take part in the Senate Crazy Golf competition, watch a live gunboat battle… or simply stroll around the glorious park. In the evening we will make our way to the Scarborough Spa for a delicious 3-course meal including a welcome drink and ½ bottle of wine per person (and soft drink allowance for those not drinking wine). Dress code is smart/casual, no black tie required.
On Sunday we recommend a stroll along the Promenade and a paddle in the sea before we set off for the morning entertainment activities. There are two alternatives: you can visit the Stained Glass Centre and watch a demonstration; or you can take part in a Footgolf competition – a 9-hole golf course where the aim is to kick the ball in the hole! Or you can spend time in Scarborough perhaps visiting the transport museum or taking a ride on a train, and meet us later. Lunch will be served at the Centre before we bid you a fond farewell.
