THE BAYLE MUSEUM: Showcasing Bridlington’s illustrious history through interactive exhibitions


In the 14th Century the Bayle Gate was adapted to become the Gatehouse to the Bridlington Priory. Since the dissolution of the monasteries by Henry VIII the Bayle Gate has been used for a number of purposes, sometimes simultaneously. Prior uses include a Prison, a Court of the town, a Schoolroom for merchant’s apprentices, a Garrison for Napoleonic soldiers on route to Scarborough Castle, a Town Hall and a meeting room for the Lords Feoffees.

Today the Bayle Gate is a Grade I listed Building and scheduled Ancient Monument housing the Bayle Museum.

The Bayle Museum’s collection is dedicated to the history of the town and local area.

Each year the Museum’s main exhibition, spanning the expanse of the large top floor Courtroom, displays artefacts based on a theme chosen by the Lords Feoffees.


The Museum welcomes visitors of all ages and there is plenty to entertain the whole family. The Bayle Museum is a non-profit establishment and is fully subsidised and managed by the Lords Feoffees.

Entry is FREE of charge, donations are welcome. There is a small gift shop to buy souvenirs. 

Opening hours are 11:00am until 4:00pm (last entry at 3:30pm) Monday to Friday, with reduced opening hours in October.

Bookings can be accommodated outside of normal opening hours subject to staff availability.
