It may be getting chilly, but the seaside town of Bridlington in East Riding still offers plenty to do whatever the weather. If you’re planning a winter getaway to Bridlington this year then read on to find out the brilliant all-weather activities in and around the town. We take a special look at what to do in the run up to Christmas too.
Christmas in Bridlington
If you’re lucky enough to be visiting Bridlington in the run up to Christmas you’ll find plenty to do. Every year Bridlington Spa Theatre has a pantomime performance running from mid-December to January. The town’s second theatre, the cosy Spotlight, also runs a Christmas pantomime performance on certain dates in December and January.
The town is also located well for access to some of the best Christmas markets in the Northeast. This includes Beverly Festival of Christmas which is held every year in early December. The city of York is easily accessible for a day trip and is home to a charming Christmas festival that includes log cabins, choirs, bands and plenty of local produce, crafts and mulled wine.
Sunbathing may be out but the promenade is still home to all sorts of indoor family entertainment, including amusements, shows at the Bridlington Spa and even an indoor soft play.
Sewerby Hall and Gardens
This large palatial mansion and gardens on the outskirts of the town in the village of Sewerby is open all year round. A busy calendar of events makes it a great place for all the family to visit whether it’s snowing, windy or raining. Indoor exhibitions include the Amy Johnson Memorabilia exhibition as well as changing temporary exhibits. Check on the Sewerby Hall website before you go to see what’s on.
Bridlington is a fabulous place to visit any time of year, and even in winter when the summer crowds disperse, it’s a wonderful place to take a bracing seaside walk, or indeed head up to the cliffs. From Christmas markets to pantomimes and year round events at Sewerby Hall, there’s always plenty to do in Bridlington during winter.
