The Scarborough Maritime Heritage Centre is set on the North Yorkshire coast and offers a fascinating look back in time at the history of the relationship with the sea in Scarborough. Come along and enjoy an interesting and educational few hours totally free!

The Scarborough Maritime Heritage Centre is a little gem waiting to be discovered. Situated a short distance up the main road from the historic harbour, the Centre is crammed with lots of interesting exhibits and information about Scarborough's fascinating past. Volunteers are mostly local people, including ex fishermen, with lots of knowledge. They can give you a personal introduction to the exciting growth of Scarborough from a Viking settlement to the heyday of shipbuilding, the bombardment in WW1, our connections with the Titanic and much more.

Entrance to our Centre is FREE and we are open Wednesday to Sunday 11am until 4pm. If you are researching your family history our volunteers can also help you look for information.

The SMHC is run entirely by volunteers and public donations. The Centre's aim is to educate the public about Scarborough's maritime heritage and to make it available to all and for future generations.
