Coastal Villages - Nature, Parks & Gardens

Bridlington - Nature, parks and gardens header
The coast’s villages are the ideal base for the nature lover to explore seawards to the east, and the gorgeous North York Moors National Park and the Wolds to the west. The area is alive with wildlife, and is nationally and internationally important for certain types of plantlife: the North York Moors is the largest continuous expanse of heather moorland in England.
