Just south of Filey you will find Flamborough, the perfect location for nature lovers and those who love the outdoors. The iconic white cliffs that tower over Flamborough’s beaches provide the perfect setting for hiking and birdwatching. In fact, Flamborough is just a stone’s throw away from one of the UK’s most famous RSPB reserves, Bempton Cliffs. One of the largest and most accessible mainland nesting colony of the gannet; plus puffins, razorbills, guillemots and other seabirds. RSPB also offer Seabird Cruises which are a great way to get a closer look at some of these amazing birds.
The beaches of North and South Landing are also a great spot for rock pooling - you may even spot a seal or a peregrine falcon if you are lucky! If you fancy learning a little more about the amazing marine life here on the Yorkshire Coast make sure to stop by the Living Seas Centre.
Flamborough is also a magnet for lighthouse lovers. The first, a stately chalk tower, was built in 1669 and it’s believed it was never lit. It is now a Grade II listed building, the oldest complete lighthouse structure in the UK, and one of the oldest in the world. The ‘new ‘ lighthouse built in 1806, acts as a waypoint for deep sea vessels and coastal traffic as well as marking Flamborough Head for vessels heading for Scarborough and Bridlington.
