An East Yorkshire Beachcomber open top bus on Scarborough seafront

We're pleased to announce that our Scarborough open-top Beachcomber buses will return for the 2023 summer season.

With services running up to every 20 minutes down the North and South bays between the SEA LIFE Centre and Scarborough Spa on weekends and school holidays from Saturday, 1 April, there's no better way to see the Yorkshire coastline.

Beachcomber buses will run up to every 20 minutes up and down the North and South Bays on weekends and school holidays from Saturday, 1 April, until the end of summer, helping tourists and East Yorkshire locals see the fantastic sights of Scarborough this summer.

Additional buses will be running during the school holidays and weekends from Saturday, 1 July until Sunday, 3 September, making sure that everyone who wants to explore this wonderful part of the Yorkshire seaside gets the chance to.

Ben Gilligan, our Managing Director, has said:

"We’re really excited for the return of our Beachcomber service this summer season. Scarborough has always been a very popular tourist destination, and rightly so! We’re looking forward to helping everyone experience the best of the British summer."

Those heading out to hop on board can benefit from discounted tickets available East Yorkshire Buses app, or pay full price with cash or contactless. One-way tickets can be purchased for just £3, or those who plan on making the very most of their day exploring the area can purchase a day ticket starting at £5 for an adult and £3 for a child for unlimited rides all day. Just like last year, groups of up to 4 people travelling together can get better value for money by grabbing a group ticket for just £12!

Additionally, those travelling into Scarborough by car can take advantage of local Park & Ride sites by purchasing a discounted ticket, combining both Park & Ride and Beachcomber. Combined tickets are even cheaper on the East Yorkshire Buses app, starting at just £7.50 for an adult, £4.50 for a child, or £17.00 for a group of up to 4 people traveling together – perfect for families heading into Scarborough by car!
