The ancient and stupendous Scarborough Castle, once the glory, and still the ornament of Scarborough, was built in the reign of King Stephen, by William le Gros; Earl of Albemarle and Holderness.

I hope this site will trace the history and facts of Scarborough Castle, one of the most important historical sites in Yorkshire and the role it played in Scarborough's History.
