From The Yorkshire Times.
There may be more world-class culture to be found strolling along a seaside prom than a city street, according to a new free guide launched by Scarborough Borough Council’s Tourism department, which raises a cultural flag for the Great British seaside.
The good news for Yorkshire folk is that they do not need to travel far to find world-class culture.
Although most people believe that a city’s the place to go for ‘culture’ (according to Visit England), Yorkshire’s coast could instead be one of Britain’s most cultural locations: it is half the size of London and has just 2% the size of the capital’s population (it is one of the least-crowded places in the country), but recent investment by business leaders, Scarborough Borough Council and the North York Moors National Park means that a person on the coast can enjoy a cultural experience to rival, and even to exceed an average city dweller. The Yorkshire Coast is even exporting its culture in 2018, as the local Stephen Joseph Theatre is set to stage a show in New York.
