Bridlington Seafront

Bridlington is a seaside town in East Yorkshire. It is a town originally of two parts which have now grown together; Old Town, around a mile from the sea front, grew up around the medieval Augustinian priory founded in 1113, and the harbour area, which grew up around a small fishing settlement originally known as Bridlington Quay.

Get around[edit]

Access[edit]

Bridlington is a very accessible town for people with mobility issues. It is very flat, a rarity on the Yorkshire Coast. Unlike neighbouring Filey there is no cliff to navigate in order to reach either the North or South beaches, although the harbour area can be a little tricky to explore as much of it is cobbled or has steps. Mobility scooters can be hired by the day or week and many can be seen on the promenades on the front. Several guest houses and self-catering places have spaces for scooters to be kept by guests.
