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.

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.

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.
