Squeezed between chalky white hills and rolling farmland you’ll find the beautiful town of Bridlington, a seaside escape awash with elegant promenades and historic attractions, where you’ll find a rich cauldron of natural wonder and its own slice of sandy Yorkshire coastline. While you may feel the need to visit and experience the buzz and good cheer of Bridlington’s energetic old town, it’s always worth taking a day or two to explore the rich natural landscape that surrounds and epitomises Bridlington holidays.
RSPB Bempton Cliffs
A short journey away from the many holiday cottages in Bridlington are the RSPB Bempton Cliffs; a nature reserve teeming with provincial wildlife and known for the many seabirds that gather along the chalky white cliffs. It’s said around half a million seabirds congregate upon Bempton Cliffs between the months of March and October – peak season for bird watchers and anyone who appreciates the quirks of British wildlife.
Bridlington Birds of Prey and Animal Park
If you prefer something a little more hands-on, indulge yourself in a jaunt to Bridlington Birds of Prey and Animal Park. This fantastic zoo offers plenty of fun-filled experiences the whole family can enjoy. From meeting the mischievous meerkats to braving an introduction to the birds of prey, this award-winning park provides a great day out that you’re sure to look back on with joy and fond memories.
A visit to Bridlington wouldn’t be complete without sunning yourself at one of the town’s nearby beaches. However, beyond the exciting attractions and events you’ll find along the shoreline, Bridlington’s beaches provide much in the way of coastal exploration and natural wildlife. A stone’s throw away in Flamborough you’ll come across North Landing Beach, a beautiful expanse of white pebbles, soft sand and rock pools. Take the chance to search for lurking crustaceans while absorbing the breath-taking views from this picturesque piece of heaven.
No matter what you choose to do in Bridlington, you’ll come across a plethora of wildlife, whether it’s in the county’s nature reserves, upon the beaches, or out at sea on a puffin-seeking excursion. Either way, you’re sure to have a great time.
