Grandstand viewpoint at RSPB Bempton Cliffs

Grandstand viewpoint at RSPB Bempton Cliffs

Six cliff-top viewpoints get visitors close to the sights, sounds and smells of the nesting seabirds and give spectacular views along the coast. Three viewpoints are fully wheelchair accessible.


We stock a wide range of optics, so whether you are choosing your first pair of binoculars or telescope or looking to upgrade, our monthly demonstrations give you the chance to 'try before you buy' with a friendly and impartial team on hand to help you choose.

Call in any time between 10 am and 4 pm. There's no need to book. So come long and put our optics to the test on the viewpoints!

Alternatively why not book an hour’s One to One session on the reserve and get the full benefit of a personal service.
