The earliest recorded history of Scarborough, in the 12th century, describes it as a thriving settlement overlooked by a great royal castle. As a gateway to northeast England, Scarborough and its castle were strategically important, and withstood several sieges. The castle is supposedly haunted by the restless spectre of Piers Gaveston, a favourite of Edward II who was beheaded in 1312; occasionally visitors report a ghostly figure on the battlements, so keep your eyes peeled.
