  • Bempton Cliffs are located outside Bridlington. There are 400 feet chalk cliffs home to 250,000 seabirds. It is a nature reserve run by the RSPB and the only maintained seabird colony in England. Here...  read more »
  • A lovely place to spend a day with lots of birds, beautiful cliffs and views. Wheelchair accessible walks and viewing. Helpful staff and plenty of parking. 
  • Fantastic spot for our hobby and lots of good birds during migration. Staff very helpful and there was a nice café. 
  • Recently refurbished with a lottery grant, the whole building is much bigger and there are 5-6 new viewing points along the walk, all wheelchair accessible which is a good thought often overlooked. Car parking is now free but you're paying per person to go in and onto the cliffs, which you can access from along the coast for free, but it's for a good cause anyway and £3.50 per adult at time of me writing summer 2016. They estimate to have over 250,000 birds here in summer, so bring your zoom lens if you have one and well worth a visit when the weather is good and visibility clear
  • Absolutely astoundingly beautiful place! We visited at the end of June which is the breeding season for the birds. The views of the Sea birds was amazing! We saw Kittiwakes, Puffins, Ganets, Razor Bills, Guillemots, Herring Gulls, Bridled Guillemots and also a Seal, there was a Barn Owl hunting, and plenty of other small birds and insects. The access to the RSPB building with toilets, shop, cafe, and the rest of the site including the many viewing points to see the Sea Birds on the cliff edges was brilliant. I am currently disabled, I found that the RSPB had even made special areas for disabled people to view the birds. There are good paths and plans for more in the future. There is a service to hire binoculars, to use wheel chairs and there are plenty of guided walks. The area is dog friendly and they provide a water bowl for them. I was in a privileged position being guided and educated by the Manager of the site Keith Clarkson, who was the most friendly and positive guy, and who is doing an outstanding job at RSPB Brampton Cliffs! I thoroughly recommend visiting here! I am a Wildlife/Nature/Landscape photographer, and found the area and it's bountiful wildlife the most stunning place to take photos, it was a dream come true! thanks to Keith, his team and to the Wildlife! I will visit again and you should visit too! 😃
  • Recently improved and worth a visit if you're in the area. A nice little cafe and shops and the paths are well surfaced for both wheelchairs and prams. Some good views over the cliffs and if the birds are nesting can be quite a sight! They also have some mobility scooters for visitors to use if needed.
  • Complete rip off went there this weekend with my wife cost us £7.00 to walk thrugh a very small gift shop with again rip off prices to walk down a old foot path to cliffs to see birds you can see any where else in bemton and flambrough for free just a rip off!!!!
  • Good facilities and knowledgeable staff. The tarmac paths and viewing points make it easy to see the birds. The RSBP have also made an effort to make the site accessible to visitors with disabilities.
