Bridlington: what a weekend by the sea can do for your mental health

For some, a weekend holiday is a great time to relax, unwind and let the stress of a long working week ease off. Everyone loves a good break, after all! For others, a holiday somewhere along the coast can be a real lifeline on a bad day. We’re all stressed out – some more than others It’s known that, in Britain, 1 in 4 people experience mental health difficulties at some point in their lives, and 1 in 6 experience a common mental health problem in any given week (according to Mind). That’s a lot of people – and, if you’re one of them, the normal stresses of day-to-day life can weigh heavier on you. Increasingly, too, scientists are finding that looking after mental and emotional well-being, such as practising mindfulness, can really improve your job performance and family life. Put simply, everyone needs a pick-me-up sometimes, and that’s as much about your mental health as taking medication or meditating daily. We could all do with looking after our minds a bit more, however we […]

Go crabbing in Bridlington: a great day out for all the family

Bridlington boasts one of the East Coast’s finest fishing harbours and generations of Yorkshire children have enjoyed long days happily casting a line to catch crabs. On any sunny (or not so sunny!) day you’ll find dozens of families heading down to the harbour to pick up a line and bucket from one of the many shops around the front. Crabbing costs next to nothing and is incredibly easy. Best of all, it will keep the kids occupied for hours. What do you need to start crabbing? You’ll need a line or a special crabbing net, a bucket in which to put your catches and of course some bait to lure the crabs. There’s lots of shops in Bridlington which sell everything you need. Crab nets are really simple to use. You simply place your bait inside and drop the net into the water. Crabs are attracted to the food and climb in to get a nibble. Alternatively, a line comes with a little mesh bag on the end in which you put the bait […]

Why Bridlington’s sea air will literally “do you good”

It’s a long-held view that breathing in fresh air at the coast is beneficial for health. But did you know that this has a scientific basis? This means Bridlington holidays could be just what the doctor ordered! And quite literally in parts of the UK, where GPs are “prescribing” nature walks in a groundbreaking health initiative. NHS Shetland and RSPB Scotland have launched a pioneering project to encourage patients to tackle health issues such as anxiety and high blood pressure by going out and about and enjoying nature’s rich bounty. Of course, this is based on centuries-old wisdom about the value of coastal areas. Doctors have been encouraging people to take trips to the seaside – including visiting “bathing hospitals” — since as far back at the 18th century. Modern studies on coast benefits If you ever thought this was based on “old wives tales”, then think again. There is clear evidence that living near the sea brings improved health, not least as proximity to the coast is a major incentive to be more active. […]

Explore historic Bridlington

You probably know that a Bridlington holiday is a fantastic opportunity to enjoy spectacular scenery and explore nature, but did you know that it also offers a fascinating glimpse into the past? Dane’s Dyke To travel back in time to the Bronze Age, a visit to Dane’s Dyke during your Bridlington holiday is well worth it. Many visitors do not realise that the Dyke was man-made. Stretching for 4km, the Dyke, which may have been a Roman landing site, was probably created to make the land more easily defendable. Even the car park at Dane’s Dyke holds some historical interest. It was once the site of a grand Victorian house, built in 1873. If you look carefully at the trees surrounding the car park, you may spot several exotic species, such as monkey puzzle, which were once a part of the magnificent gardens. Flamborough Head Flamborough Head, where Dane’s Dyke is located, was also the site of a naval battle in the American Revolutionary War. The battle of Flamborough Head is commemorated in another of […]

Why Bridlington makes the perfect autumn break

Bridlington is beautiful all year round, but autumn holds a particularly special place in our hearts. The autumn leaves, crisp air and the sparkle of the first frosts – what’s not to love? When you think ‘seaside holiday’, you probably imagine glorious summer days on the beach. But visit Bridlington in the autumn and you’ll see a different side to this pretty seaside town and its surrounding landscapes. No Bridlington holiday would be complete without a walk along the coastal path, which offers stunning views of the town and sea. While the waters may be blue and gentle during the summer, autumn can see some very dramatic and choppy waters which can only be fully appreciated from the coastal path. It’s also a good time to visit RSPB Bempton Cliffs, a peaceful spot where you can see our overwintering feathered friends arriving before the colder weather properly sets in. This is a lovely area of outstanding beauty and the turning of the leaves provides all the autumn colour you could want. If you like walking […]
