Flamborough’s famous white cliffs enclose a dramatic bay with caves and chalk arches, and boasting a fabulous lighthouse! It has two – one active, and one dating to 1674, making it the oldest surviving complete lighthouse in England. You can climb the 119 steps of the Flamborough Lighthouse to see the magnificent views. The village is just a couple of miles from Bempton, one of the UK’s most famous RSPB reserves, hosting gannets and puffins amongst other sea birds.
Danes Dyke is a lovely walk. Easy parking with a friendly café and then a walk through the woods to the beach. Lots of rock pools to explore. Great for finding sponge rocks.
The Living Seas Centre on South Sea Road (South), Flamborough, YO15 1AE has information and education facilities.
