After a couple of visits to Bempton , we decided to walk to
Bridlington,along the cliffs, via Flamborough Head, a fairly lengthy walk but extremely enjoyable with some
fantastic cliff views, perhaps the highlights were before you reach Flamborough Head and this
seems to be the area dominated by the kittiwakes.
We decided to have morning coffee at the Headlands, as we were too early for lunch, though with hindsight, we wish we had, as we did not arrive in Bridlington until 2.30.The Headlands looks a very nice place for lunch.
Bridlington is quite an interesting place, as you descend from the genteel Sewerby , with its cricket pitch on the cliffs,six and not out but the ball goes over the cliff, and you continue down the long esplanade you get that Eastbourne feeling, very pleasant indeed. The pretence continues down North Marine Drive and then you hit the central area, where your eardrums are accosted by the entertainment establishments and your vision by the tackiness of these establishments, but thankfully it is only for a short distance. Then not everyone will get excited about a gannet colony.The interior of the town, though perhaps with no obvious centre is not unpleasant.
As we were late for lunch, now mid afternoon, we had an excellent takeaway, freshly cooked to order, from Wards, who also introduced me to ‘sraps’, batter bits to us southerners.
A bus back to Flamborough was in order, with a short walk from the village back to the Grange.
Other campsites in the area
Woldfarm, which is just up from the Grange, on the track outside of the site and the added advantage that it is nearer to the cliffs and with direct access from the campsite. We discounted this site, despite good reviews, because it did not appear to have any hard -standings.
Caravan Club Site Bridlington
Suitable for caravan owners but too far from Bempton if you have a motorhome.
