Scarborough is a coastal town in North Yorkshire in northern England. Following the discovery of acidic water in the nearby cliffs in the seventeenth century, it developed as a spa, and it remains a seaside resort. The town suffered bombing from German warships during the First World War. For 500 years, the town held a trading festival, which has been commemorated in the well-known song, Scarborough Fair.
