We visited one of the UK's favourite seaside towns – here are the horrifying reasons we should have kept on driving | The Sun

SCOTS tourists who visited a popular seaside town have urged others to "keep on driving" in a scathing TripAdvisor review.

The couple, from Glasgow, were left disgusted after a three-night stay in Scarborough in May.

Giving the destination a one-star rating, they branded the Main Street as "a chav paradise" with "an air of grubbiness".

Posting under the username annemarieb181, they added: "The Main Street was a chav paradise, loudmouths, slot machines and a general air of grubbiness.

"Went for a coastal walk the next day and yes it was just as bad, bus back to North Bay.

"It’s no great surprise places like Scarborough struggle, the place needs a good clean up and that includes a lot of the clientele."

Another tourist blasted the "dirty" beach, adding: "The beach was dirty and the whole neighbouring area littered and filthy.

"We last came here 15 years ago and it’s changed dramatically from a vibrant seaside town to nothing more than a dump."

Despite the negative review, Scarborough has more than 2,000 five-star ratings on TripAdvisor – with many people raving about the "nice and clean" beach.

North Yorkshire Council was approached for comment.
