RSPB Bempton Cliffs

Mesmerising, breath-taking, amazing, awesome - just some of the words our visitors use when they talk about RSPB Bempton Cliffs. Around a half-a-million seabirds - including gannets, puffins, kittiwakes and razorbills - flock here in spring and summer to raise their family. Six, safe, cliff top viewpoints give spectacular views of the nesting seabirds and the dramatic coastline. The new Seabird Centre at the heart of the reserve tells the story of the wildlife on the cliffs and why it makes it home here. Three of the viewpoints are fully accessible with a hard surfaced path linking them in a circular route. RSPB Seabird Cruises sail from Bridlington Harbour throughout the season giving visitors an incredible opportunity to see the colony as seabirds swoop and soar all around. In autumn and winter, when mists fall and winds blow, a clifftop walk is a great way to blow away the cobwebs. RSPB Bempton Cliffs is one of the truly unmissable British wildlife spectacles.

This is vastly improved with a better information centre and path from there to the cliff tops. You can now easily take a mobility scooter and have a really enjoyable visit

We too some of our family here for the first time. It was lovely - fortunately the weather was brill so it made the day even better. There is always something extra going on here from quizzes to fancy dress days and a family ticket is really good value for £10. There was plenty of on-site parking and they seem happy to let you park there for the day if you fancy a wander down onto the cliffs or beach. Bondville have a very good little tea shop with good prices.

Bridlington Priory Church

Reviewed By Sarah A - North Yorkshire, United Kingdom

We had a lovely time exploring this old church, which is v large inside. The church was created in 1113 originally a monastery. The stained glass windows are beautiful and colourful. Children can follow the mouse hunt trail seeking wooden mice throughout the building. Volunteers give a warm and friendly welcome, and provide information as needed.

Sewerby Hall and Gardens

Reviewed By Nicola D - Hessle, United Kingdom

We arrived mid-week on a miserable wet day, so miserable in fact that most of the animals were in hiding. We passed by some alpacas and miniature ponies who looked very unhappy standing up to their ankles in wet mud.
We bought our tickets and were given a token to open the gate into the ‘zoo’. I would call it a zoo in the loosest sense of the word.
In the first concrete enclosures were some parrots, degus and large pigs. We walked on to the wire enclosures but sadly most of the animals were out of sight (sheltering from the rain I presume).
The bird walkway was closed due to avian flu.
There were a couple of depressed looking penguins in their concrete enclosure which looked like it could do with an upgrade. We saw 1 hungry Guinea pig overdosing on cabbage leaves, and sadly not much else.
Unfortunately this sad experience cost us over £7 (that was with a 25% off voucher) for 3 adults and a toddler which was a complete waste of money. We were in there less than 30 minutes. Our little one was very disappointed. Her highlight of the morning was seeing 2 pigs and some pig poo!
We went into the Clock Tower Cafe to cheer up our toddler and to warm up.
This looks like a nice little cafe with a large area to sit outside in the better weather. We only had hot drinks on this occasion but the prices for soup etc looked quite reasonable. There is a part of the cafe which is dog friendly.
We had hoped to take the land train to Bridlington sea front but unfortunately that is not running yet.

Flamborough Lighthouse

A lighthouse was first built on the Flamborough Headland in 1669 but was never lit. The current lighthouse was built in 1806 and acts as a waypoint for deep sea vessels and coastal traffic as well as marking the Flamborough Headland for vessels heading for the ports of Scarborough and Bridlington. Tours of Flamborough Lighthouse are organised by East Riding of Yorkshire Council under licence from the Corporation of Trinity House.

Plenty of parking by the lighthouse. Good café. To the left of the lighthouse is the beach. You can walk down there but on a wet day or where it has been raining take care. You can see arches to the furthest point of the beach and there are lots of caves. If you love geology it’s great. To the right of the lighthouse is a better path but if you go further right still you can see another stack and arch. I’m sure these all have names but I don’t know what they are. Anyway, I could have stayed longer but it was a very windy and cold day when we were there and the tide was out. I dare say in summer it is a very busy place.

Bridlington Birds of Prey & Animal Park

Our family owned award winning park has lots to offer for a fun filled family day out. We rescue all our animals and birds and they all love lots of attention. We offer daily displays, pig racing, small animal holding and lots more fun activities. So come and have fun with birds of prey.

Reviewed By molly75 - lincolnshire

We visited this park in February half term & it was absolutely freezing!! The staff at the park are all very friendly & we were made to feel very welcome. It was £20 for two adults & two children, which I thought was reasonable. The main park is quite small, with larger fields at the back. It was VERY muddy, so be prepared! It was literally like a mud bath & the kids got filthy. But we were prepared for that & wore wellies. There were pigs, sheep, llamas, birds of prey, emus, wallabies, meerkats & Guinea pigs/rabbits. It doesn't take long to walk around, but if the weather was better I'm sure you could stretch it out for a few hours. What I did like was the chance to interact with the animals. We got to feed carrots to the pigs & handle snakes & a lizard. We also watched the bird show, which showed the birds flying & the man gave lots of info about each bird. We didn't see many meerkats because it was too cold for them & there were only about 7 animals in the field area. It was okay for the price, but I would probably visit in summer if we came again. There was a cafe with play area outside the park, not actually part of the park. There was a nice picnic area inside the park though. I can see this park could be really good in the future with some investment. It could do with better walk ways, especially for pushchairs & also a nice play park would be good. Some extra bits would make it more of a day out, instead of just an hour or so. My kids enjoyed their visit though & like I said the staff there were so friendly. If you go not expecting a huge place & knowing it's just a small family run place, then I'm sure you will enjoy it.

North Landing Beach

Reviewed By Jonathan C - Egham, United Kingdom

Drive to North landing and the first thing you find is a car park with great views of the cliffs and beacth. It is pay and display, but cheap for an hour (50 or 60p). Short walk, but quite steep, to the beach. There is a cafe at the car park too. While you're in the area visit Danes Dyke and the light house as well as everything is within a couple of miles of each other.

Fraisthorpe Beach

Reviewed By venusbell - Leeds

We go to this beach often with the dogs. Just to re-iterate to all the people complaining about the dogs IT IS A DOG FRIENDLY BEACH. Also to the people complaining about dogs off leads IT IS A DOG FRIENDLY BEACH. The last thing I'm going to do is take my dogs to the beach ad not allow them to run around off lead and have a good time. If you don't like dogs find another beach don't complain about it.
That said it's great for dogs and dog lovers, animal lovers in general in fact with the horses on the beach as well. I haven't witnessed anyone not picking up after their dogs although I suspect others are right when they say they have witnessed it. There are a lot of irresponsible pet owners out there.
The parking is a it steep . We only go for an hour or 2 but have to pay fees for the day but the prices are extortionate. IN winter they have an honesty box. We always put £1 in because it's worth it to us in winter but the price for horse boxes and trailers are so high I doubt they honestly get that.
