Live Like A Local: Bridlington
23 June 2017
If you’re thinking of heading to Bridlington, you’ll find plenty to see and do, whether you’re staying with us at our Bridlington Links park or just exploring for the day.
As the area has so much to offer, we have put together a few of our local favourites so that you can make the most of your time there!
Try local foods
There is plenty of incredible food in Bridlington and the surrounding area. We really recommend getting fish and chips to eat on the beach, or you can check out our post on the best places to eat in Bridlington.
Visit local attractions
There are plenty of days out and activities to enjoy in the Bridlington area, and here are just a few of our favourites.
These incredible towering chalk cliffs are in fact home to 250,000 seabirds! Summertime is the peak of breeding season, so it’s a great time to visit and experience it for yourself.
There are nearby fields where the bright red campion flowers are in bloom and a lovely picnic area which is family-friendly.
Whether you wish to just have a stroll along the cliffs and see whether you can spot a puffin or visit the seabird centre, there’s plenty to do. The RSPB also holds various events, from photography to bug hunts.
A wonderful place to visit for people of all ages, Sewerby Hall and Gardens offers lots to see and do. There is a small zoo, with animals such as penguins, llamas and lemurs, and the opportunity to feed the animals.
Then there is the house itself, Sewerby Hall, which has been restored to recreate the way the house would have looked and felt in Edwardian times. Enjoy a guided tour of the house, or just have a wander about by yourself.
The gardens are also quite a sight to behold with over 50 acres of landscaping, featuring a walled garden, pleasure garden, rose garden, and woodland area.
There are also picnic benches dotted around, should you wish to bring along sustenance for your day out, or there is also a café on site.
Try your hand at pottery painting, at Pot-A-Doodle Doo! You can choose from a wide variety of different ceramics, and then relax and sit down to paint it in the studio. Then simply leave your masterpiece to be glazed and fired. You can then choose to come and pick it up a couple of days later or have it posted to you.
If you wish to take your handiwork home with you there and then, you can also try your hand at decopatch, which is a paper and glue system based on decoupage, or acrylic painting.
Explore the surrounding dales and woodland areas on horseback with the Woldgate Trekking Centre, whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned rider. Disabled riders are also welcomed!
Take to the high seas aboard the Pirate Ship, and enjoy a popular scenic tour of the coast. Children will love the unique pirate theme, and adults will love learning all about the history and taking in the spectacular views!
Many visitors to Bridlington miss out on visiting its Old Town. Besides having a great deal of history to take in, the Old Town was also the location for filming ‘Walmington On Sea’ for the Dad’s Army film.
The Old Town features lots of independent shops, galleries, and traditional pubs, and is full of charm and character making it an essential part of your next trip to Bridlington.
A game of golf here at Bridlington Links
Why not come and stay with us here at our fantastic Bridlington Links park, where you can enjoy a game of golf on our 6719 yard, par 72 course, or driving range? We also have a 9 hole course for something a little lighter.
Head out for a wander
Explore the beautiful local area on foot, where there is plenty of exploring to be done at Danes Dyke, or North Landing Beach where you can enjoy the fresh sea air!
Of course, these are just some of the things that Bridlington has to offer, make sure you keep an eye on our blog for more holiday advice and inspiration!
