This Yorkshire tour involves a trip along the coast to the RSPB reserve at Bempton, where we will walk down to the cliff tops for some seabird spotting.
The cliffs at Bempton are home to over 200,000 seabirds, with puffins, guillimots, gulls, fulmars and kittiwakes all frequenting the cliffs at different times of the year. There are a range of viewing points and you can hire binoculars to help observe the birds and their chicks.
From Bempton it’s just a short journey to Flamborough. We will visit Flamborough Head, home to two lighthouses. One built from chalk which is one of the oldest in the country and the newer lighthouse where tours are available on certain days.
We can walk down onto the beach and see at first hand the eroded chalk cliffs and the strange stacks and arches which have been created.
After Flamborough, we will drive to Bridlington. First we’ll visit the old medieval Bridlington Priory, before heading into the town centre for fish and chips and a stroll down the beautiful sandy beach. There will be plenty of time to stop for souveniers.
After a full day we will head home in time for tea.
