Discover the East Yorkshire Coast
The East Yorkshire Coast offers so much, whether you're looking for a leisurely beach break, a busy weekend of arts and culture, spot of wildlife watching, or latest in high tech sporting fun.
The scenery at Flamborough and Bempton, with their white chalk cliffs and seabird colonies, is very dramatic, then gradually becomes gentler as you approach Spurn Head, passing through Barmston, Ulrome, Skipsea, Hornsea and Withernsea.
Top 5 things to do
Yorkshire Wildlife Trust’s Living Seas Centre at Flamborough is a great family gateway to learning about what lives above and below the waves. Get top tips for rock-pooling and seashore exploring nearby, and find out the latest information on sightings of dolphins, porpoises and whales all along the coast.
Those who love the great outdoors will enjoy the East Yorkshire’s many coastal walks and cycle routes. For slightly cosier pleasures, Bridlington offers theatres, cinema, bowling – and even the opportunity to make your own stick of that classic seaside treat, rock!
For a traditional seaside trip of family fun and happy memories, it's got to be Bridlington and the East Yorkshire Coast.
There is something to suit everyone in Bridlington and along the coast, you can build sandcastles, tuck into fish and chips, go fossil hunting with the kids, and watch the boats go by on our glorious Beaches, secret coves and bustling harbour.
Take the family on a great day out to a popular attraction like Sewerby Hall & Gardens, Bondville model village, John Bull world of rock, Hornsea Folk Museum and Withernsea Lighthouse Museum to name just a few.
The East Yorkshire Coast brings you the best entertainment, events and festivals every year, ranging from sport through dance, comedy and drama to top international names in music.
Bridlington Spa is renowned for bringing in some top acts and the musicals set to hit the stages at the Spa this year are no exception. With names such as Gareth Gates, Amelia Lily and Maureen Nolan these shows are not to be missed!
There are excellent museums on the East Yorkshire Coast: the Bayle, housed in the former entrance to the town’s Augustinian Priory, and now dedicated to the history of the town, and the Harbour Heritage Museum, which catalogues the resort’s maritime history. Hornsea Folk Museum, complete with Victorian farm kitchen, dairy and Blacksmith's shop, is award winning. Withernsea Lighthouse Museum and Holmpton's Cold War era nuclear bunker are must-see attractions!
And finally but by no means least come to the Coast with an empty stomach because we have fish and chips galore! There is nothing like sitting on the seafront gazing at the gorgeous views, eating fish and chips with a wooden fork, the smell of salt and vinegar lingering in the air and listening to the sound of the waves! That’s not all that’s on the menu with some fantastic eateries around the town but it’s always a good place to start.
