Getting There

A circular walk around Flamborough a village in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England, north-east of Bridlington town centre on the prominent coastal feature of Flamborough Head. This short circular walk takes you on a mini-tour of one of the most spectacular areas of chalk cliffs in Britain. If you love coastal walks, stunning scenery and lighthouses, and want your dog to be able to have a good run too, then this exhilarating walk might just be the one for you. The terrain is fairly easy, following clear grassy paths and then ending along a quiet road. There are no stiles or livestock on route, but you will need to negotiate a footbridge and a flight of wooden steps. Remember to keep children close and dogs under close control on the sections close to the cliff edge. Allow 1.5 hours.

Take the B1255 Flamborough road from Bridlington and as the road bears left entering the village, turn right along the B1259 '€“ Lighthouse Road. The walk begins in the pay and display by the Flamborough Lighthouse. Toilets are also provided in the car park. Nearest post code YO15 1AR.

Once again, went with my family of six. Two youngest children could not be let lose because of the cliff edges so this obviously hindered our walking and sight seeing enjoyment. Place and walk is beautiful but if I do decide to come again, it will be without kids. Queues either end for cafes were crazy so didn’t bother. Went on a Sunday afternoon with great weather so was naturally packed

A lovely walk through fields and along the coastal path. We were lucky enough to see about 20 seals basking on the foreshore

Lovely easy walk along the coastline. Great circuit walk and dogs loved the run. Walk along road back to car park, not to bad as there is a pavement to use.

A simple walk with great sea views. But there is a road stretch which was fine in May but could be busy in the holiday season.
