Scarborough Castle is an English medieval fortification located on a rocky elevation that faces the North Sea and the town of Scarborough, in North Yorkshire. It is typified as a planned monument of national importance. Its location encompasses Iron Age settlements, a Roman signaling station, an Anglo-Saxon settlement and its chapel, in addition to the castle grounds, from the 12th century, next to its 18th-century artillery units.
During the 1130s some fortifications were created to build a wooden castle, but the existing castle, made of stone, dates from the 1150s. After the centuries, medieval monarchs added new structures, since at that time it was an important fortress that protected the coast of Yorkshire, the port of exchange of Scarborough, and the north of England of the Scottish invasion or other continental hosts. Due to its fortification it served as protection during several civil wars, sites and conflicts, since the kings fought against rival barons, faced rebellions and lashed out at Republican forces, although peace with Scotland and the end of the wars in the seventeenth century diminished its importance.
It was occupied by garrisons and governors, who often threatened the people, but has been in a ruinous situation since the sieges of the English Civil War. It is a tourist attraction with interactive exhibition, as well as a series of special events by the English Heritage.
