Overview
More
A lighthouse was first built on the Flamborough Headland in 1669 but was never lit. The current lighthouse was built in 1806 and acts as a waypoint for deep sea vessels and coastal traffic as well as marking the Flamborough Headland for vessels heading for the ports of Scarborough and Bridlington. Tours of Flamborough Lighthouse are organised by East Riding of Yorkshire Council under licence from the Corporation of Trinity House.

Old English spot on a beautiful day was well worth the drive from York! Take your time, drive and look. Not a rainy day event but a great walk.

I came on a school trip as a parent supervisor. Having never been to flamboroigh but frequented Bridlington it was a nice surprise. The lighthouse has lots of history and we went to the top where the view was spectacular.
