The Polite Tourist Presents a SATURDAY EVENING Walk in SCARBOROUGH - Sleepless in Scarboro'

As dusk beckons, why not walk awhile with The Polite Tourist as they peel back the long shadows which lurk just out of view in the seaside town of SCARBOROUGH?

Find yourself spirited back to the cruel streets and darkened passageways of a Victorian world and to a place where death was ever present.

And as you walk along the old, unquiet streets and through the dark and crooked labyrinths to a Victorian yesteryear of death and despair, crime, disorder, murder and mayhem – the long forgotten tales of those folk who once claimed these streets as their own will be revealed.

For those of a curious and hardy temper – why not come along and listen to The Polite Tourist one SATURDAY evening in SCARBOROUGH as they share with you the tales of those ordinary folk including the tragedy of an unwanted child, and the mystery of a besotted spouse.

Hear also of the poignant tale of a confused domestic servant and a father's callous behaviour.

And ALL lost to history – until now!

However, for those of a sensitive nature who are averse to real stories of tears, heartache and tragedy – a walk with The Polite Tourist one SATURDAY evening in SCARBOROUGH may NOT be to your taste.
