Bridlington is a seaside town with so many endearing sides to it. For decades, the East Coast’s premier resort has attracted crowds thanks to its promise of traditional seaside fun. Walk along the elegant promenade you will find two expansive award-winning golden beaches where you can while away the hours relaxing in a deckchair watching the waves roll in, building sandcastles with the kids or simply feeling the sand between your toes on a stroll. There’s plenty to keep little ones amused on a coach holiday to Bridlington too, including amusement arcades, fun fairs, donkey rides and a land train which tootles along the prom throughout the course of the day.
Down on the seafront you will also find the town’s historic harbour. Take a boat trip out to the North Sea to discover the dramatic East Coast coastline, where the soaring cliffs are punctuated by secret coves. Learn more about the town’s fishing trade at the Harbour Heritage Museum or simply spend some time watching the day’s catch being brought to shore. The lingering smell of fish and chips is never far away on a coach break to Bridlington and is certain to whet your appetite whilst you can sample the finest local crab, mussels and scallops from the seafood stalls that line the prom.
Away from the fun of the beach, you will fall in love with Bridlington Old Town which has a nostalgic atmosphere where quaint tearooms, characterful pubs, galleries and antique shops jostle for your attention. Learn more about the town’s fascinating history on a guided tour or lose yourself in the higgledy-piggledy cobbled ancient streets, which provided the setting for the Dad’s Army film. You can discover more of the town’s cultural heritage at the stunning Bridlington Priory Church, a monastery dating back to 1113 AD, and Bayle Gate which brings to life the history of the town.
