It was a nice sunny day which makes all the difference. Walking on the cliffs and then down onto the bay was a delight. The tide was just going out so it was safe to go down and explore the beach with all the hidden caves and rock pools. Although it was a sunny day the wind was up so... More

Called here a few times, really nice views and walks, there is lots of parking and prices are very reasonable 60p for 1 hour. Great views across the North Sea and fantastic scenery along the cliff walks. Well worth a visit.

Lovely spot, lovely cafe. Visit the light house if you get the chance ! Nothing to dislike. We walked from Bridlington along the cliffs 7.5 miles with amazing scenery, but there is a car park if you drive.

Visited Flamborough Head for a few hours, The views are superb. There are plenty of local walks - careful of the cliffs! Local Cafe serving freshly made food - very tasty.

Enjoyed visiting the lighthouse 10 years after we were last there - knowledgable guide and wonderful views. Cafe looked good if we hadn't brought a picnic - nice cup of Yorkshire tea. We even saw seals in the bay below
