Bridlington is a beautiful town and civil parish located within the East Riding district of Yorkshire and is a popular seaside resort and minor seaport lying by the North Sea.
Bridlington is an excellent location for outdoor pursuits and water sports, largely due to Flamborough Head, a site with dramatic views, excellent cycling trails and public walks. Many water sports can be enjoyed on the coast, or for something a little more relaxing you can just enjoy the beautiful weather whilst getting a tan on the shore.
Between Bridlington and Flamborough is Sewerby village, where you can visit the popular gardens and museum of Sewerby Hall, easily accessed from Bridlington. The RSPB nature reserve of Bempton Cliffs which lies close to Bridlington is the breeding ground of the Northern Gannet and Atlantic Puffin, a popular spot for birdwatchers, photographers and tourists alike.
