Comprising the hilly streets on the eastern side of the town, Upper Scarborough is a busy area with plenty of shops and banks, but gets steadily quieter the higher you climb. Proceeding east from the ferry terminal along Carrington Street, you soon reach a junction known as King’s Well, originally the site of the town’s main watercourse, but now home to an excellent Italian café. A sharp left here takes you out of town along Northside Road and the edge of the Botanical Gardens, while the sharp right is Castries Street, the route to Main Street. Between the two, steeply inclining Burnett Street is one of Scarborough’s best places for knick-knack shopping – anything from T-shirts to lingerie.
