Visitor parking is all at the top of the steep hill which leads down to the lower part of the village. There are 2 public car parks, a small one just before the steep hill to the old village, and a much bigger one that used to be the old railway station. Hourly and daily payments can be made in the normal way at the Pay and Display machines. Alternatively, permits for longer stays can be obtained from the Post Office (Station Road Stores) and they can be used in any car park within the borough of Scarborough (both long term and short term car parks) should you want to explore whilst you’re here.
Some accommodation in Lower Bay comes with a parking permit for the private Fisherhead car park which is about half way down the bank on the right hand side. If you don't have a Fisherhead parking permit, most people park in the car parks at the top and carry their luggage down the hill to their cottage. If you feel that’s a bit too far or too steep, you can drive down into the old village, unload then drive back up to the car parks at the top. The road is narrow and twisty, and you will need to do a nifty 3 point turn at the bottom to get back out!! Please try to park as close to the road edge whilst you unload so that other vehicles can pass.
This car park is located on Station Road, opposite the Grosvenor Hotel. This is the larger car park with parking spaces for 207 cars and 4 coaches. There are two designated disabled parking bays. It is a Pay and Display car park, and payment can be made at the machine with cash, credit card or Ring and Go.
This car park is also located on Station Road opposite the Victoria Hotel, just before the steep hill to the old village. It has 74 spaces, 2 of which are allocated for disabled drivers and 4 of which are allocated for electric vehicle charging. It is a Pay and Display car park, and payment can be made at the machine with cash, credit card or Ring and Go.
There is a regular bus service from Scarborough through to Middlesborough which calls at Robin Hood's Bay, Whitby, Runswick Bay etc... . In the summertime it runs every 20 minutes or so. This bus route has been voted one of the most scenic in the country and Arriva now have a commentary on selected buses each day. The bus stops are located at the bottom of Thorpe Lane, near the junction with Station Road. The one with the bus shelter heads North to Whitby.
We are fortunate to have our very own Taxi service. As you can imagine, it is very popular during the summer months so if you need a taxi for any reason it is best to book ahead of the time that you need it, and Nikki will be sure to oblige.
