Maps & Directions


The White House, Burniston Road, Scarborough, North Yorkshire, YO13 0DA

How to get here

By rail: There are good connections through York train station.

By Coach: National Express will drop you at Peasholm Roundabout. Follow Burniston Road up the hill, past Tesco Express, the Ivanhoe pub and Gulf Service Station. Go down the hill, over the bridge and then our driveway is at the end of the bridge on the other side of the road.

Book your coach tickets here.

By Car: Leave the town centre on the A165 to Whitby. After the roundabout near Peasholm Park follow the A165 up the hill, past Tesco Express, the Ivanhoe pub and Gulf Service Station. Go down the hill, over the bridge and then our driveway is at the end of the bridge on the other side of the road.

The turning to YHA Scarborough is immediately after the bridge on the left, but the turning is very sharp and it is much safer to signal right at the end of the bridge and turn in the concrete entrance as you begin to climb the hill, make a U turn and then come back down the hill to turn right into the hostel driveway.

If you are coming from the north you should take the A165 coast road from the mini roundabout in Burniston. As you descend the hill into Scarborough (past the Scalby Manor Carvery), signal right and turn into the driveway just before the bridge.

Some SatNav systems will send you to Scalby Lodge Farm which, although it shares our postcode, is not close to YHA Scarborough.

By public transport: From the station you need to cross the road and walk down Westborough, the main shopping street, to York Place, the first turning on the right. From there you can take a bus 3 or 3A to the Sealife Centre. Ask the driver to give you a shout at the Ivanhoe pub. We are about five minutes' walk from the Ivanhoe, along the main road, past the Gulf service station, down the hill, over the bridge and then our driveway is at the end of the bridge on the other side of the road.
