Tourism tips for Scarboro’

SCARBOROUGH has received a mention in the latest edition of commercial property magazine Estates Gazette.

In an article reporting how tourism experts are placing greater emphasis on providing high standards rather than low price vacations as an increasing number of Britons choose to take their holidays in the UK, Ellen Gylen writes: “Foodies flock to Ludlow for haute cuisine, to Scarborough for fish and chips and Melton Mowbray for pork pies. Walkers, mountain bikers, zorbers and sea kayakers look to explore Dartmoor, the West Highland Way, Exmoor, Snowdonia and the North Yorkshire Moors before contemplating a trip abroad. This is the vision that David Harper, director of Leisure Property Services, holds for future UK tourism.”

Mr Harper adds: “Tourist boards should concentrate on making their sell very local - unique, not cheap.”
