Take in magnificent views from Bempton Cliffs

Bempton, East Yorkshire

Bempton’s towering chalk cliffs skyrocket to over 100 metres (109 yards) in points, with awe-inspiring views overlooking the coast of East Yorkshire.

RSPB Bempton Cliffs look out towards the North Sea along a dizzying stretch of coastline, running some six miles (9.6km) along England’s northeast coast.

There are five cliff-top viewing points to peer out from with your binoculars, or you can enjoy a picnic with a beautiful wildflower meadow and a shining stretch of blue sea as your backdrop.

The site is a nature reserve run by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) and is Yorkshire’s best place for sighting sea birds, with over 250,000 calling these cliffs home.

Visitors can spot England’s much-loved puffins and learn the difference between gannets, guillemots, kittiwakes and fulmars. There is also a bird feeding station situated 200m (218 yards) from the visitor centre and car park. 

RSPB Bempton Cliffs are situated just outside of the Yorkshire town of Bridlington, between Bempton and Flamborough, 34.5 miles (55.5km) north of Hull by road.
