favourite, and easily the best place in England to see, hear and smell
seabirds! More than 200,000 birds (from April to August) make the
cliffs seem alive – with adults bringing food to their nests, or young
making their first faltering flights.
With huge numbers to watch, beginners can easily learn the difference between gannets, guillemots, razorbills, kittiwakes and fulmars. The easily recognisable puffins (here between April and July) are always a delight. Specially-created cliff top viewpoints are wheelchair accessible with care.

The Bayle Museum
The word Bayle is derived from the French Baille meaning ‘enclosure' or ‘ward’.
Recent archaeological surveys of the Bayle have concluded that a large proportion of the building dates to the late 12th Century. The initial use of the building is unclear although there is a possibility it may have been a gatehouse to a castle built by William le Gros after he took control of Bridlington Priory in 1143.
In the 14th Century the Bayle was the Gatehouse to Bridlington Priory, a porter lived inside the Bayle and monitored the comings and goings of the Priory. An Almoner also lived in the Bayle and distributed food and ale to the poor of Bridlington.
Since the dissolution of Bridlington Priory the Bayle has been used for many different purposes including a Prison, Court, School, Garrison, Non – Conformist meeting place, Town Hall and meeting room for the Lords Feoffees.
Today the Bayle is a Grade I listed Building and scheduled Ancient Monument, which makes it of great interest historically and architecturally.
Dyke was declared a Local Nature Reserve in 2002 in recognition of its
wildlife value and its importance to the local community. Local Nature
aim to protect places of special interest and provide opportunities for
research, education and informal enjoyment.
The reserve is part of one of the finest stretches of coastland on the east coast. This unique sea and cliff environment is protected as a Site of Special Scientific Interest and its seabird colonies mark it as a Special Protection Area. The offshore environment has been identified as a Sensitive Marine Area and a Special Area of conservation. In 1979 the area was designated a Heritage Coast due to its rich history and landscape.
Burton Agnes Hall
Built between 1598 and 1610 by Sir Henry Griffith, Burton Agnes Hall is an Elizabethan stately home that has stayed within our family for more than four hundred years. Fifteen generations have filled the Hall with treasures, from magnificent carvings commissioned when the Hall was built to French impressionist paintings, contemporary furniture, tapestries and other modern artwork in recent years.
Simon Jenkins, author of England's Thousand Best Houses, described Burton Agnes Hall as ‘the perfect English house’ and as one of the twenty best English houses alongside Windsor Castle, Buckingham Palace and Chatsworth House.

The Yorkshire Belle
original Yorkshire Belle, built for A & W Crawford, was
launched at Messrs Cook, Welton & Gemmell's Beverley shipyard.
She arrived in
Bridlington on Thursday the 19th May 1938 which was her first time at
sea as her
trials had been conducted on the River Humber. Sadly, she was destroyed
Second World War when she hit a magnetic mine in the Humber and was
The replacement Yorkshire Belle was built in 1947 also by Cook, Welton & Gemmell and is registered as No. 793. She weighs 70 tons gross and has a length of over 24 metres, a breadth of nearly 6 metres and a depth of 1.7 metres. With two eight-cylinder Gardner engines each giving l52hp she can carry up to 206 passengers. She is fully licensed with a lounge bar and ladies' saloon that serves light refreshments throughout the cruise. She is equipped with a public commentary system for pointing out items of local interest along Flamborough Head and on most cruises there is live music played and an opportunity to purchase Yorkshire Belle souvenirs. As well as relaxing one-hour cruises to Flamborough Head, there are also special extended cruises to the Bempton Bird Sanctuary offering close-up views of the cliffs, lighthouse and caves.
She was bought in 1982 by her current owners, Mr Roy Simpson and Mr Peter Richardson. Before the purchase both men worked in Huddersfield but have now become Board of Trade recognised skippers. Previous Yorkshire Belle skippers have included Mr Jack Pockley who retired in 1972 and Mr Philip Thornton.
It’s not in the dictionary, but if it was, Go Ape would be described as a 'tree-top adventure'.
We take one lush, green forest and a healthy dollop of breathtaking scenery blend with a smattering of tree-top high wires, tricky crossings(using ladders, walkways, bridges and tunnels made of wood, rope and super-strong wire) and wind-in-your-face zip wires finished off with a liberal dose of people in search of their inner Tarzan.
We kit people out with harnesses, pulleys and karabiners, give them a 30 minute safety briefing and training and let them loose into the forest canopy, free to swing through the trees. Of course, instructors are always on hand, regularly patrolling the forests (not in monkey suits unfortunately!
The result is spectacular. The Go Ape experience gets you outdoors in the fresh air and above all (no pun intended),it's just great fun.
Dalby Forest is situated on the southern slopes of the North York Moors National Park.
The southern part of the forest is divided by a number of valleys creating a 'Rigg and Dale' landscape whilst to the north the forest sits on the upland plateau.
Although comprising mostly pines and spruces there are many broadleaf trees such as oak, beech, ash, alder and hazel both in the valleys and on the 'Riggs'.
Clear streams arising in springs run north and south out of the forest. A lake has been created at Staindale.
The forest is a home for birds such as the crossbill and that elusive summer visitor the nightjar. Roe deer abound and badgers, the symbol of the forest, are a very common but nocturnal resident.
