Bridlington is a beautiful destination for a seaside holiday, but we all like a bit of variety, and taking a day trip or two on your visit to Bridlington is a great way to make the most of your getaway. Check out three seaside towns you can visit from Bridlington below:
Just over an hour north of Bridlington you’ll find Whitby, one of the east coast’s most dramatic seaside towns. Featuring steep cliffs and a ruined abbey on the hill, it’s nothing if not breathtaking. Home of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, you’ll find more than a handful of spooky themed attractions here, as well as lots of charming seaside tearooms and some of the best crabbing spots in the UK – if that’s what floats your boat.
The much larger town of Scarborough has a very traditional front, resplendent with old-fashioned villas in pastel tones and some newer beach huts, which have been painted all sorts of gaudy colours. Like Whitby, it has its share of tearooms, but you’ll also find the gorgeous Peasholme Park – complete with boating lake – and an excellent pirate themed adventure golf course – among other things.
Take a look to see what’s on before you plan your trip to Scarborough too – with a couple of well regarded theatres, there’s often a play, musical or act on that you might like to plan your trip around.
Robin Hood’s Bay
Much smaller than the other two destinations on this list, Robin Hood’s Bay has far fewer amenities. While you’ll still find fish’n’chips and a cup of tea, there are no amusement arcades and the town itself is quite small.
The biggest attraction of Robin Hood’s Bay is the spectacular beach, which stretches for miles at low tide and is perfect for a game of rounders. You can even hunt for fossils – it’s a great place for getting back to nature.
