Things to see and do on the East Yorkshire Coast

The Yorkshire Coast is one of real contrasts, from the haunting landscaps of the southern end, to the dramatic and rugged cliffs of the North - and all within an easy day's drive.   

Families have enjoyed the East Yorkshire coast for many years now – numerous glorious golden beaches, traditional seaside arcades and funfairs, donkey rides on the beach, chalets, fish and chips and ice cream…

Children also love the busy Bridlington harbour, from where you can sail across the bay on a traditional pleasure cruiser, a pirate ship or a speedboat, or just watch the fascinating day-to-day business of the local fishing industry.
