September to May can be a great time to explore somewhere new, the East Yorkshire coast is packed with surprises
If you’re looking for a family escape in October or February half terms and want golden beaches and family-friendly attractions, head straight to Hornsea or Withernsea.
Why not climb all 144 steps to the top of Withernsea’s Lighthouse for breath-taking views of the Holderness coastline? On a clear day you can see right across to the Humber Bridge.
Whether kids are in tow or you’re after a last-minute romantic getaway, Bridlington’s harbour, beaches and fresh seafood are a draw whatever the age. Lobster, crab, oyster or scallops, the shellfish at Bridlington is considered amongst the best on the coast and the town has an array of eateries from candyfloss and fish ‘n’ chips to the freshest, off-the-boat catch of the day.
Ambling through Bridlington’s Old Town you’ll encounter vintage galleries, independent shops and boutiques, perfect for jewellery, hand-crafted ceramics and local produce. The town also offers a packed festival programme – whisky, pumpkin, kite, lobster, Race the Waves – you’re sure to stumble across a lively event and if you’re planning a Christmas break, don’t miss the magical Winter Wonderland display at nearby Sewerby Hall and Gardens.
