Wild Eye: Residents’ Day at Scarborough Castle

Posted on 05.06.2024

Calling all Scarborough Residents – our exciting Wild Eye project is delighted to bring Scarborough residents FREE entry to Scarborough Castle on Sunday 16 June 2024. For four days a year, the castle opens its doors for residents to enjoy the spectacular history, panoramic views and wildlife.

How To Get Free Entry:

Free entry is for those with YO11, YO12 and YO13 postcodes only. To gain entry you will be required to bring proof of your address (driving license or utility bill) on the day to the Scarborough Castle ticket entrance. If you are not a Scarborough resident, a normal admission ticket is required. Pre-book your ticket online to save 10%, and find out more through the following link: Pre-book Tickets Here (non-residents). Last admission is 4:30pm and the site is closed at 5pm so we recommend arriving earlier to make the most of the 16-acre site!

What’s On:

Come along as we celebrate Big Green Week up at the Castle:

  • Learn more about our seas, the wildlife that lives there, and how we can protect them, at the Wild Eye stand.
  • Join Stuart Baines from the Sea Watch Foundation to spot and record porpoises, dolphins and whales, from within the castle grounds. Binoculars will be available for visitors to use.
  • Journey back in time with geologist Stuart Swan, who will be showcasing a variety of locally-found fossils. Why not bring along your own fossils to learn more about them?
  • Explore the castle with guided history and wildlife tours by English Heritage throughout the day.

What is Wild Eye?

Wild Eye is an exciting art and nature programme celebrating Scarborough’s incredible wildlife and coastal environment. Local communities, leading artists, businesses, and scientists are working together to create a series of events, artworks, and experiences that connect people with the natural world and support positive action for nature.

Wild Eye aims to foster a greater understanding of the incredible wildlife found across the North Yorkshire Coast, raising awareness of issues around nature, biodiversity and climate change.
