Flamborough

Rugged and windswept, Flamborough is one of the Yorkshire coast’s most dramatic locations. The white cliffs tower over beaches perfect for hiking and birdwatching – Flamborough is just a stone’s throw away from one of the UK’s most famous RSPB reserves, Bempton, which boasts the largest and most accessible mainland nesting colony of the handsome gannet, plus puffins, razorbills, guillemots and other seabirds.The beaches of North and South Landing offer some fantastic rock-pooling - under the watchful eye of seals or maybe even a peregrine falcon - and the Living Seas Centre has all the top tips to help you make the most of the coast. 

The area is steeped in history, too. Flamborough is a magnet for those who love lighthouses, as there’s not just one, but two – the first, a stately chalk tower, was built in 1669 and, it’s believed, was never lit. It’s 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.

The Battle of Flamborough Head, which took place in 1779, is one of the most celebrated sea battles of the American War of Independence, between an American squadron led by John Paul Jones and the two British escort vessels protecting a large merchant convoy.
