Study Description 

Situated on the exhilarating coastline of North Yorkshire and affectionately known as the ‘Queen of English watering places’ – the town of Scarborough occupies a fascinating place within the history of seaside resorts.

And along with a history of besieged castles, dinosaur remains, literary prodigies, fishing ports, religious persecution, folklore, medicinal drinking waters, smuggling, and pirate radio – Scarborough still enjoys an enduring charm.

From a population of just over 32,000 in 1801 – Scarboro’ Gothic is a record of this unique town, its history and the local characters from the heady days of the Georgian era until the dawn of the Edwardian epoch.


From 1801


The population of Scarborough was recorded as 32,947 in 1801.
