1. World records
Scarborough school students helped to create the worlds largest comic strip in 1988, a record which still stands. They transformed a section of South Bay beach into a giant front page of The Beano.
2. Mrs Farrar
The name Mrs Farrar might not mean much to many, but Scarborough may have developed very differently without her. In 1626 she discovered a stream of acidic water containing iron in South Bay - the start of Scarborough as a Spa town and a tourist destination.
3. Rare Trees
Peasholm Park Glen is home to two trees from a species that at one point was thought to be extinct - the Dickinson Golden Elm. It was thought the species had been wiped out by Dutch Elm disease in the 1970s but Scarborough is home to two of these incredibly rare trees.
4. Scarboroughs stonehenge
The oldest house in Britain, dated 8500BC, was unearthed near Scarborough at the Star Carr site near Seamer. The Mesolithic archeological site has been said to be as important to research into the Mesolithic period as Stonehenge is to the Neolithic period.
