Mesmerising, breath-taking, amazing, awesome - just some of the words our visitors use when they talk about RSPB Bempton Cliffs. Around a quarter-of-a-million seabirds - including gannets, puffins, kittiwakes and razorbills - flock here in spring and summer to raise their family. Six, cliff top viewpoints give spectacular views of the nesting seabirds and the dramatic coastline. The new seabird centre at the heart of the reserve tells the story of the wildlife on the cliffs and why it makes it home here.

In autumn and winter, when mists fall and winds blow, a clifftop walk can be a truly experience.

RSPB Bempton Cliffs - one of the truly unmissable British wildlife spectacles.

Bempton cliff was an attraction that I never heard of until I spotted it on country file, it was about 1 hr drive away so I thought why not. We went knowing that the bird population was at its high for the season and we could get a chance of spotting some puffins!!! When we arrived we were very pleasantly... More

Walking around the cliffs here are pure bliss. The rugged beauty and nature are out of this world. If you are visiting Bridlington, please take some time out and try this spot. You will not be disappointed. The visitors centre is great as well now. If you come while the puffins are breeding you will be gob smacked by this... More

Great views and stunning birds. I've only ever been greeted by lots of people with great big smiles on their faces even though it is truly windy even on hot summer days. Advice - always wrap up warm.

It was rough, cold, rainy and muddy but we braved the elements with lots of other like minded visitors. As RSPB members we were pleasantly surprised that our non-member family (2 adults, 2 under 5's) were allowed free entry. The receptionist was very helpful, explaining why we couldn't expect to see many birds until the Spring. We enjoyed the walk... More

This is a must visit site for anyone who loves nature! Especially during the summer when the cliffs are literally full of Gannets, Guillemots; Razorbills and Puffins. But there is also a wide range of other habitats and wildlife to see all year-round. All enhanced by a recently rebuilt visitor centre with a great catering vacility & gift shop

Spent a whole afternoon on the cliffs, wonderful cafes along the way and beautiful views of the beach and ocean at the top. There are animals kept on the cliffs too, we enjoy coming back and seeing them each year.
