Bridlington has two stunning beaches of gleaming golden sands, with a picturesque, bustling harbour in the middle. The harbour is a hive of activity with fishing boats bringing in the day's catch, pleasure cruises along the heritage coast, speedboat rides across the bay and North Sea fishing expeditions on offer. Here you can also find a funfair, kids' corner and donkey rides, a museum, children's zoo, pitch and putt, putting green, craft units and tearooms. Mike Hitches takes a fascinating visual journey through the area, and also takes us back in time. If you head away from the beach into the Old Town, you will find a gem that has remained largely unchanged for centuries, where Olde Worlde pubs and antique shops rub shoulders with art galleries and tearooms. Why not follow this affectionate and fascinating historic tour, which will surprise and delight anyone who knows and loves the area.
