A map of the location of the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors National Parks in relation to the City of York (symbolised by York Minster and a red outline). This map shows the locations of Middlesbrough, Scarborough, Whitby and Helmsley in the North York Moors area. Scarborough is about 55 km north-east of the centre of York City in a straight line. Map data ©2022 Google, North at top.

AFTER YORK, I drove to the resort town of Scarborough, which seemed like a miniature Blackpool but less touristy.
