See the striking black and white lighthouse near to the end of Spurn.
Witness the breathtaking landscape of Spurn - a place of big skies and ever changing wildlife. A unique and iconic place, this Yorkshire Wildlife Trust Nature Reserve has so much to offer the visitor throughout the year. As paradise for birders it is the best mainland location in the UK to witness bird migration.
This curving spit is only 50 metres wide in places, making it look like an elongated tongue. Spurn is a relatively small place but it's got lots of variety, and, if you know where to look, there's something for everyone, great plants and animals, sea fishing, fossil hunting or just walking. The lifeboat station at Spurn Head was built in 1810.
Owing to the remote location, houses for the lifeboat crew and their families were added a few years later. This station is the only one in the UK with a full time crew.
