The world-famous Peasholm Park Naval Warfare is a must see when visiting Scarborough! A unique family holiday attraction and possibly the longest running show of all time. Enjoy an afternoon of entertainment in one of Europe's favourite parks.

Peasholm Park Naval Warfare is a unique holiday attraction and could be the longest running show of all time. As near as we can say, the first performance was held in about 1927. It was the brainchild of Mr George Horrocks who was the Entertainment's Manager for many years. Incidentally he was also responsible for the Open Air Theatre which is just across the road from Peasholm Park.
