Member Name: johanna18
Advantages: lots to do
Disadvantages: busy in summer
Bridlington is a famous seaside resort which has an appeal for people of all ages. Its beautiful beaches and brand new award winning promenades and gardens are popular with families and the older generation.
Bridlington is situated on the East coast of Yorkshire north of the Hull and the River Humber just south of Flamborough Head. A half hr ride North leads you towards the seaside resorts of Filey, Scarborough and Whitby.
Great beach and harbour - donkey rides
Town centre shops
Bars and restaurants
Bridlington's Leisure World
John Bull World of Rock
Beside The Seaside Museum
Lots of bars to choose from, lively on Fri, Sat nights.
Mostly cheaper style restaurants - pub grub, fish and chips, fast food. Not found anywhere worth recommending as yet.
Attractions just outside Brid
If you like walking and enjoy nature then a visit to Danes Dyke is a must. A short journey out of Bridlington towards Flamborough takes you straight there.
Cruckley Animal Farm is a great day out for the family not far from Brid. Lots of hands on family entertainment.
Bridlington has now become the venue for the British Open Darts Competition and has two 18 hole golf courses. The seafront road-train is worth a trip and takes in all the sights of Brit. Besides the tat shops and ten-a-penny rubbish fish and chip shops Brid is actually a lovely place the visit. The harbour is particually attractive and worth a wander round.
