Ten of the best walks around Scarborough

To celebrate National Walking Day here are ten of the best walks around Scarborough.

Whether it's a calm family stroll on a Sunday or an active hike across the clifftops, there is something for everyone in and Scarborough. Here's a list of ten of the best.

Arguably some of the best views of the town are from the top of Oliver's Mount, you can see for miles on a clear day. Couple it with a walk round the mere to feed the ducks and you have a perfect day out.

There's plenty to explore in the woods at Forge Valley. The walkway makes this option accessible to all ages.

Popular with walkers and cyclists, the cinder track is a nice flat run all the way to Whitby. Alternatively, looping from Burniston to Hayburn Wyke and back is a great walk, with a pub to stop off at half way through!

The mammoth Cleveland Way is over 100 miles long stretching from Helmsley, over the moors and down the coast to Filey. If you don't fancy the whole thing, there are fabulous views on the stretch from Sea Life to Cloughton.
