Scarborough Station

Scarborough owes much to the railway. The arrival of the Scarborough to York line in 1845 sparked a population surge; according to local sources, some fifteen thousand spectators witnessed the arrival of the first train. The town subsequently bloomed and as a result of the rail line's success, many of the Scarborough's key monuments lie within a few minutes walk of the station – including The Grand Hotel, the largest hotel in Europe when it opened in 1867. Scarborough underwent a similar transition in 1626 when spa waters were discovered running down the cliff at South Bay beach. The water's health benefits were recorded in a 1660 book titled the 'Scarborough Spa' and the ensuing tourist hysteria earned Scarborough the moniker 'Britain's first seaside resort.' Previously named Scarborough Central to distinguish it from the since closed Scarborough Londesborough Road, the station has the longest station passenger bench in the world with a whopping length of 139 metres.
