and surrounding area

The coastline around Flamborough Head boasts stunning chalk cliffs, magical coves with rock pools, caves, sea stacks and archways, as well as pebble and sand beaches. The chalk here is millions of years old. It was laid down when dinosaurs were still wandering the earth.

At the southern end of the cliffs lies Bridlington and at the northern limit Bempton’s famous RSPB reserve. At Bempton, the 400-foot high chalk cliffs provide nesting sites for large numbers of seabirds and it is definitely a birdwatcher’s paradise. The reserve houses the largest, mainland nesting colony of gannets. You can also see puffins, razorbills, guillemots and many other seabirds.
