Beautiful Flamborough is always a pleasure to visit. The Cliffs and its rugged coastline are amazing, and are a match for anything even in Cornwall. The kids love to explore the rock pools whilst the tide is out, and a Coffee or an ice cream is always a nice treat from the cafe Flambourough Lighthouse is still one of the countries remaining "workers". For a small fee you can have a tour and learn the history and its operation.

20 minutes walk or a five minute drive takes you into Filey town. A quiet town even when its busy, Filey never seems over crowded. A visit to the Cobble landing is a must, whilst on the landing why not visit the RNLI Lifeboat to hear of its most recent epics and heroics. Filey has its own Museum which is worth a visit. A Coffee and a bite to eat in town or a pint at one of local pubs is always a pleasure.
The best place in England to see, hear and smell seabirds! Each year, 250,000 of them flock to the cliffs between Bempton and Flamborough to find a mate and raise their young. Between mid-April and mid-July, the much-loved puffin also makes its home here. You can get close to the action from six, safe cliff-edge viewing platforms. Inside the seabird centre there’s an exciting exhibition area.
