Bridlington tourist information Ian and Ginger at Bridlington harbour

Our Bridlington Story

We didn’t really know much about Bridlington until Ian’s dad moved there several years ago – it was all quite new to his dad too, who had previously lived in and around Scarborough for very many years.

We were able to do some exploring together, and have enjoyed very many visits to the town, and the sea front and beaches…

The main reason I like Bridlington is because of its beautiful beaches and because in Summer, it has a slightly more relaxed feel than busy Scarborough – of course, being a bit closer to our home in East Yorkshire does help a lot too!

Bridlington Tourist Information

  • Bridlington is a traditional seaside resort, ideal for British holidays on the coast, short breaks and family days out in the UK.

  • Bridlington tourist information harbour at dusk

  • Bridlington is a smaller town than Scarborough, and although it is still very popular in the Summer, does tend to have a quieter, more relaxed feel... a way, not quite so ‘commercial’ as Scarborough (although Scarborough still does have a very traditional feel to it, inspite of all the hustle and bustle).

  • Bridlington is a real family resort - very suitable for families with young children, and very good for the more mature visitor too.

    Ian’s dad lived in Bridlington while he was in his mid 80’s, and found it a much more suitable town for people his age – it's less busy, easier to drive around, and flatter - a big deal when you are getting older!

  • Bridlington does have a small and bustling town centre - with all the shops you might need for you everyday living (for ‘serious’ shopping, visit Scarborough or York, Hull or Leeds, further afield).
  • There is also a sprinkling of the expected seaside amusements along the sea front, and plenty of gift shops for that essential souvenir.

  • Bridlinton tourist information north beach in summer

    Even in the height of summer, Bridlington beaches are never too chaotic!

  • The main attraction to Bridlington though – for us, at least – has got to be the sea front, and the beaches.

    There are 2 main beaches in Bridlington –

    • the south beach (which stretches for miles beyond the town– all the way to Hornsea)
    • the north beach

    These are divided by a busy, and pretty marina area, with all the usual seafront entertainments.

  • There is a lovely promenade all the way along the seafront, where you can walk, admire the sea, and usually (except when it is very busy) park your car.

    Ian’s dad loves to park along the North Marine Drive, winter or summer, just to watch the sea for a while (it’s also an excellent spot to enjoy your fish and chips!)

  • The beaches have all the traditional seaside attractions:
    • flat, golden sands (they are lovely, wide beaches)
    • in summer:
      • sandcastles
      • ice creams
      • donkey rides
      • …etc…

Come to Brid for the beautiful beaches, but don’t miss the many other attractions…

Bridlington is only a short drive from other parts of the Yorkshire east coast, with plenty to see and do, and attractions to visit…
