The Spa in Scarborough is one of Yorkshire’s most scenic events and exhibition spaces. Overlooking the North Sea coast from South Bay, the Spa regularly welcomes entertainment and live music to its 2,000-seater Grand Hall and its 600-capacity Spa Theatre.
The Grade II*-listed Spa building, so named due to the building’s original proximity to the source of Scarborough’s famous spa waters, has been in use for hundreds of years and opened in its current form in the 1880s. The Spa can be reached, uniquely, via the Victorian Cliff Tramway, which was specially constructed in 1875 and remains in use today.
Today, the Spa’s Grand Hall is regularly used for live entertainment and serves as the home of the Scarborough Spa Orchestra, England’s last surviving professional seaside orchestra. It also hosts the annual Scarborough Jazz Festival. The Spa’s theatre, meanwhile, hosts seasonal shows and the venue’s annual pantomime.
If you’re looking for a pleasurable evening down by the seaside, the Scarborough Spa may be just the place for you.
