Places to Visit
Bridlington harbour is at the very heart of the town and community. As well as being home to the men and women who earn their livelihood there from the sea it is also a magnet for the tens of thousands of people who visit Bridlington every summer for their holidays or family days out.
Bridlington Promenades & Beaches
Bridlington has two stunning beaches of gleaming golden sands, set against the stunning backdrop of the impressive Flamborough cliffs. Above the beaches are award-winning, wide promenades. Donkey rides are available in the summer, and the South Beach features a Beach Volleyball tournament in July.
Bridlington Spa is the premier entertainment, business and conference centre on the coast of the East Riding of Yorkshire, having reopened in 2008 after a £20.5 million refurbishment.
The Spa includes a theatre and the Royal Hall events arena; there are also conference rooms, meeting rooms, training facilities and the Cafe Bar.
Sewerby Hall is a Grade I listed country house set in 50 acres of gardens, 2 miles from Bridlington. A £2.6 million restoration project was completed in 2014.
The hall now houses the Museum of East Yorkshire and the Coastguard Museum. The grounds are home to a small zoo and aviary, as well as an 18 hole putting range.
Flamborough Head is a promontory between the Filey and Bridlington bays. It is a chalk headland, with sheer white cliffs. The cliff top has two standing lighthouse towers, the oldest dating from 1669 and Flamborough Head Lighthouse built in 1806.
The cliffs provide nesting sites for many thousands of seabirds.
Bridlington Old Town & Priory Church
Bridlington Old Town is a quaint, old-fashioned area, full of historic buildings and interesting little boutiques, art galleries, antique shops, gift shops and restaurants.
The Priory Church dates from 1113 AD, and was originally part of one of England’s leading monasteries. The surviving nave of the church is now a thriving parish church with a wealth of historic features.
