Bridlington is a popular seaside resort just south of the promontory of Flamborough Head.

The resort has grown around the harbour and quay, but a mile inland is the old market town with its attractive 16th and 17th century houses and its fine old priory church that was restored in the 19th century by Sir Gilbert Scott.

Local attractions

Flamborough is famous for its seven mile long headland, Flamborough Head, and its dramatic views.

Between Bridlington and Flamborough is the village of Sewerby, where the museum at Sewerby Hall, with its surrounding parkland, is a popular attraction.

Further up the coast from Flamborough, is the RSPB nature reserve at Bempton Cliffs. With the largest chalk sea-cliffs in eastern Britain, Bempton provides an amazing spectacle, particularly in the breeding season when huge numbers of gannets and puffins may be seen.

The stately home of Burton Agnes Hall, on the fringe of the Yorkshire Wolds, is six miles away.
