Yorkshire’s venues of infinite variety – ancient and modern, large, small and quirky

Splendid Scarborough
Further north on the East Coast is the North Yorkshire resort that has been popular literally for centuries, since recognition of its health-giving waters as early as 1626. It has two bays with extensive sand beaches at the foot of dramatic cliffs.
The main focus of the town is Scarborough Spa. It is a majestic sandstone building that has stood on a prime location on the South Bay seafront since the 1880s. It definitely grows more splendid with time.
Scarborough’s Spa hosts a big proportion of the events held in town, from conferences and AGMs and exhibitions to weddings, banquets, concerts and award ceremonies. The venue has in-house catering specialists, an in-house technical team and its own 10-piece orchestra.
There are six main function areas. The Grand Hall, resplendently Victorian, can seat up to 1,850 delegates and large exhibits can be brought in directly from the car park at the rear of the building. The Ocean Room, true to its name, has windows along its full length giving views over the water. It can seat up to 700. The Theatre, a Victorian facility but with the latest technology, can seat 570.
In addition, to be used as self-contained venues or in conjunction with the others, there are the Promenade Lounge, the Vita Dome and the Sun Court Suite. The grandeur of the facilities is not matched by the prices, which are very modest. Scarborough Spa can quote £20 as a Day Delegate Rate.
There is a wide choice of hotels convenient to the Spa, some with easy access via a Victorian funicular up the cliff. Delegates can obtain special passes to reach them from the venue.
