      English Heritage: Scarborough Castle

      Scarborough Castle stands on a massive promontory of rock that rises sheer-sided high above the North Sea. The 12th-century great tower crowning it is the centrepiece of a royal castle begun by Henry II, which was strengthened by later monarchs. It became one of the greatest royal fortresses in England and played a prominent part in national events during the Middle Ages. Twice besieged during the English Civil War, the castle subsequently became one of a handful of permanently garrisoned fortifications in Britain. The buildings today are mostly relatively recent additions to a site which, as a natural fortress, has been intermittently inhabited and fortified for nearly 3,000 years.
