I've done this recently but didn't get many replies so will repost. We are going to Haven Primrose Valley park near Scarborough in a few weeks time and looking for ideas of things to do with a 9 year old and a 3 year old. And if I can exchange clubcard vouchers all the better
I think Cherry Pie suggested Robin Hood's bay and to go to Whitby, but anything else? Anything for when it's wet? And can M get a donkey ride? She also wants to go on a ferris wheel (damn Peppa Pig going to the fair!), is there stuff like that in Scarborough??

I can't help I am afraid but we were just looking at photos of a family holiday in Scarborough when at my mum and dad's last week. Great memories and hilarious photos of bowl cuts and 80s clothing. Hope you find lots to do!

ha it feels like I'm going on an 80s holiday Alsi! But got an extremely cheap deal, hoping weather is half decent but just looking forward to getting away! M wants to go to the seaside and build sandcastles, I have visions of her in a snowsuit with a bucket and spade

Ooooo bugger I have a list somewhere!
York train museum has a wheel.
Gah there are bloomin LOADS of things to do. Whitby is bloody lovely though. We went to Blue Dolphin in October and it snowed and was cold but didn't actually go off site. S'boro has a sealife centre, a rock shop... I wish I could rememebr everything. There is a dinosaur thign as well. Not giving great details am I?

ha no the detail isn't quite there QI, but I'll google dinosaur scarborough and cross my fingers seriously, thanks though! I'm thinking a day in York would be good, especially if we go on the train, M would LOVE that. She wants to go on a ferris wheel, specifically in a purple.....chair.....cab....what would you call it?! Sealife centre would be good I'll check the tesco clubcard exchange thing to see if we can get a cheapy day out

It will be great, getting away is the best and by the sounds of it QI has already mentioned a fair few things to do. Hopefully no requirements for snowsuits either.

Ha, I'm just remembering the time H and I went to York, it poured all weekend and I was dying with sinusitis, we went in a cafe for a coffee to dry out a bit and take more painkillers and it was mobbed so ended up sharing a table with this woman who had been to a teddy bear festival/sale thing and was showing us the bear she'd bought. And she said in a broad yorkshire accent "you don't choose a bear, a bear chooses you".... it's my lasting memory of York - that and the constant horizontal rain I'm sure it was an unfortunate time to visit

There should be donkeys at Scarborough, there always have been as far as I know but the last time I went was a couple of years ago now. Peasholm Park in Scarborough is good, as is the Sealife Centre - both of which are up the north end. The York wheel somebody mentioned isn't at the National Railway Museum now, it's in the grounds of the Royal York Hotel which is next door to the station. Loads of other things to do in York I can only assume by the volumes of people in school holidays! My grandparents live on the east Yorkshire coast and when I was little they used to take me to a farm, which I can't remember the name of and have no idea if it's still open but I just know I loved it! Not much help that is it?!

There's flamingo land near by which has animals and fair ground rides I think. X
