  • The new police station, its rubbish
  • Gilly's on the seafront......keep all kids under 8yrs old away from it!!! They are not safe, even with parents with them....
  • OK! More than you can shake a demolition ball at! That tat infested Brunswick Pavilion would be first - full of pikeys - in fact lock em all in there while you apply that ball. What was wrong with the old Debenhams? I know that black and white diamond carpet gave out static electricity that could fell an ox but not a reason to flatten it in favour of the current monstrosity.
  • The old opera house is slowly coming down.
  • The one at the junction of Northway and Westbrough (with Kwick Save in it UGLY UGLY UGLY!

  • the town hall/dss/jobcentre...
  • Graham school
  • the libary, so they can increase the size of upo ally.
  • balmoral its already been changed but it is sooooo ugly or maybe the pavilion thats minging too it was soooo much prettier in the victorian times
  • scarborough as a whole
  • The Opera House should probably be demolished. Its quite fun waiting for it to fall over but I feel that this attitude is perhaps a little socially irresponsible.
  • edgehill...eastfield...barrowcliff...need i say why?
  • The Opera House, The Open Air Theatre.
  • the opera house on st thomas st needs flatting as dose the futurist
  • jimmy savilles flat.
  • Sixth Form
  • Those horrible ugly office like buildings. All visitors who come of the train see this gross building where the tourist office is. Its a 60's eyesore. Demolish it
  • The old outdoor pool
  • The Sixth Form College (or the Girls' High School as it used to be known) Scene of too many years of academic misery!
  • The Castle, come off it its been lying half beat since the War and should be replaced with the Zebnith project which threatens to put a roof on the entire town. Any house which former residents of Edghill have been relocated to.
  • all the DSS hostels.
  • The opera house really ought to be knocked down before it falls on somebody.
  • Edgehill, Barrowcliffe & Eastfield council housing estates
  • Tesco. The Conservative Club. Most of Scarborough train station is useless nowadays - the platform stretches halfway to Seamer from the days when loads of people used to arrive on trains.
  • old debenhams with the big sweeping staircase down to the sports could roll down it....when you were a kid of course
  • Club XS, Boleyns, Quids Inn.
  • olympia leisure on the south bay and all the dumps at the back of edgehill
  • All the ugly box-i modern ones! And definately that hideous Brunswick shopping thing, aren't they out of fashion yet?!- Do people still flock to these crap places that all look the bleedin same, with the same shops as every town/city in the counrty/world, the stale hot air, and always full of fat people and screaming brats. Get rid of it.
  • The horrible 70's style thing behind the Grand Hotel ; part of the Townhall? Its evil. In fact, anything built in the 60's/70's, the decades that taste bypassed.Replace ithem all with Victorian style/Gothic, something beautiful for a change.
  • that fucking old burned out cinema near st.thomas street
  • Dapper
  • barrowcliff estate
  • Gillys on`t seafront
  • The Royal Opera House. derelict for years and a total eyesore.
  • Pampered Pets
  • The toilets behind Boyes. Stink of piss. ( funnily enough )
  • alma hotel on albermarle cresnt-its full of snides!!!
  • The old YMCA needs to be flattened. It's probably rat infested. But will they knock it down. No. The damn things a listed building.
  • Brunswick Centre....poor excuse for a shopping centre as it has no decent shops and there's never anywhere to sit. Full of wasters spitting over the balcony. FLATTEN IT NOW!!!!
  • Someone obviously decided that the Brunswick Pavilion was a great example of modern architecture, enough to demolish the original store and replace it with this monstrosity. Oh, and the Sea Life Centre's pyramids don't fit in with their background; they belong on the planet Mars or something.
  • The outdoor swimming pool buildings - eyesore or what!
  • The 'Brunswick Pavilion', a big fat mountain of capitalism in the centre of town, built about six years ago by Debenhams, is about as attractive as my arse. From the outside and the inside it looks like a fucking prison.
  • Pavillion House - appaling
  • The Royal Opera House on St Thomas Street
  • The Brunswick Pavillion is a poor excuse for a shopping centre. Rip it down and biuld it again!!!!!!!!
  • Marshall House on St Nicholas Street
  • Police Station and the Grand hotel
  • The tourist information center
