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.

Not quite the weather for it but the scenery was out of this world. On a warm calm day you can walk for miles along the cliffs. We went on a day when visitor centre was closed. But it was nice to just wander and...More

Lovely place to walk or just sit and watch the world go by. You look out over the sea and all you can see is water and the birds flying over. If your lucky you may see the puffins or the odd bird of prey....More
