Still a lovely sight, with all the boats lying at anchor and good to see that the fishing fleet is still in and out daily. Long gone are the glory days when the many pleasure boats battled for the passing trade, with their lists of daily sailing times. Only the Yorkshire Belle remains and it was nice to see the old lady, as she was always our favourite. Sailing times are dependent on the tides these days. They never seemed to be a problem in the good old days, though the harbour has always had its quirks. If you sit and watch when the tide is going out, it is like someone pulling the plug on a bath. It recedes with remarkable speed, leaving many of the boats high and dry on the mud flats.

Once a bustling place, many of the surrounding businesses have closed. Having had a life long association with it, I sincerely hope that it continues to survive, whilst at the same time having some trepidation, due to the local council doing it's utmost to discourage tourism.

We can be found down here most days. It is a brilliant example of a working harbour with the fishing fleet and pleasure craft, along with the Yorkshire Belle , Pirate Boat and Speed Boat plying their trade. Lots of food outlets and an excellent museum. Must have tried them all over the past few years and would recommend them all too.

Not a patch on what it once was 40 or 50 years ago, but still pleasant to stroll along the jetties & sea walls. The boats in the harbour are mostly small leisure craft these days, with very few real fishing boats, but the fish dock is still going. The old Yorkshire Bell is still offering short pleasure trips, and you can now opt for a speedboat ride. Still photogenic.

Bridlington harbour is great, visited loads of times as a child and it felt just the same. Plenty to see and do, boat rides, shopping, food, drinks, fairground. All you need for a day out at the seaside! Definitely worth a trip.

We visited here today, it's been four years since we came last and it's still as beautiful as last time, there are coffee shops, fish and chips, waffles and doughnuts etc for sale and some gift shops, there are places to sit and eat whilst watching the boats arrive and depart, lovely to walk around also.
