Bridlington Things to Do

  • Sledmere House

    Sledmere is a Georgian House – and it is also an Edwardian House. Sir Christopher Sykes, 2nd baronet, rebuilt and redecorated the house in the 1790s, but in 1911 it was almost completely destroyed by fire. Fortunately most of the contents were rescued and they can still be seen on view today. It is worth a visit just to see the splendour of Joseph...

  • North Promenade

    Leaving the harbour and walking north is a mixed bag of things to see. The rather tacky small funfair that was built much to the annoyance of local people (agreed as it spoils the harbour area) is the first thing you see and then a row of amusement arcades but with two very good coffee/ice cream parlours that are easy to miss here. Past Leisure...

  • Sewerby Hall

    The hall has a cliff top position on the coast to the north of the town on the way to Flamborough. It stands in 50 acres of parkland and the house is used for craft fairs, exhibitions and art displays. The hall is worth visiting for the grounds alone and here are pleasure gardens , golf courses for family golf, a putting green , a children's zoo...

  • Leisure World

    Leisure World is on the north bay and has three indoor pools and wave machines. Also used for parties and other sports events.

  • The Spa

    This is East Yorkshire's largest entertainment venue with a capacity of 3500 places in the main hall. There has been a spa theatre here for over 100 years and in 2008 rebuilding and renovation saw major changes to bring the building in to the 21st century. The 1930s Royal Hall ballroom have been retained as has the Edwardian theatre.Many major acts...

  • Burton Agnes Hall

    The hall was built between 1598 and 1610 and is a fine example of Elizabethan architecture. It has stayed in the Cunliffe - Lister family for more than four centuries. There are many treasures in the house including French impressionist paintings, tapestries, contemporary furniture and some modern artwork.The old Elizabethan walled garden has over...

  • Old Penny Memories Museum

    A small museum dedicated to the slot machine with a good collection of penny arcade machines. This is a good fun museum with even some old What the Butler Saw machines.Also has a 1960s themed coffee bar.Do ring before travelling as opening times vary according to the season.(Photo to follow)

  • The Yorkshire Belle

    This little ship is a must see in Bridlington. The ship was built in 1947 and is the last surviving ship cruising out of the harbour. The ship is fully licensed and has a lounge bar that serves light refreshments throughout cruises. There are daily one hour and in July and August there are evening cruises with entertainment. The ship can carry 206...

Bridlington Restaurants

  • On the Hull road

    A large pub restaurant south of the town on the A165 towards Hull. This was recently revamped (2013) and has improved gardens with pleasant outside dining and a more traditional interior with the emphasis on wood panelling and wooden floors. The food emphasis is chicken based (although other traditional English foods such as steak and kidney pie,...

  • Best place to eat in Brildington

    I was looking for a place to eat in Bridlington and was recommended a restaurant called the Funny Onion. I found it about 200 yards back from the spa, towards the coach park. The food is mainly a steakhouse, so steaks, ribs, burgers etc. The food was brilliant – really excellent meat. It does advertise it as local and homemade, but most places say...

  • Do not go

    A number of weeks before the event, I booked a party of 21 into The Old Forge for Sunday lunch for the occasion of a 70th birthday party. The guests were all elderly and were travelling from many points throughout the north of England. To help the restaurant we obtained their choices from the menu in advance and supplied these to the restaurant....

  • The best station cafe anywhere

    A visit to the Station Buffet is worthwhile even if you are not travelling by train. I stopped by on my way home on the train recently when I was a little early for the train. A real find - just like stepping back to the 1950s with a real station buffet from a bygone era feel about it. You could expect the two main characters from Brief Encounter...

  • A Warm Welcome

    Nestled just off the cliff top walk in Sewerby the Forge always has a warm welcome. Brilliant for little ones there is a collection of toys and books and mini table and chairs.There is achanging mat/table in the loos and even spare nappies and wipes.Very busy at weekend lunch times - book if you would be really stuck otherwise, the place is...

  • Look carefully

    Bridlington is full of cafes and restaurants selling fish and chips or carvery, and I'm sure they're all very nice. If you want something different Rags has a nice conservatory that looks out over the harbour and the menu features more than just fish and chips. Pasta wasn't bad, Duck wrap was okay too.

Bridlington Favorites

  • Award winning beaches and friendly...

    Sewerby Hall and gardens is a must see. But for a cheap and pleasurable experience you can't beat a good long walk along the front and then fish and chips while sitting on the harbour watching the boats. I love the view of Bridlington bay when entering from the Scarborough road.

  • Sea and sand

    Take a walk along the beach to orientate yourself. Finish off with a great fish and chips in the harbour.
