Overview
More
A lighthouse was first built on the Flamborough Headland in 1669 but was never lit. The current lighthouse was built in 1806 and acts as a waypoint for deep sea vessels and coastal traffic as well as marking the Flamborough Headland for vessels heading for the ports of Scarborough and Bridlington. Tours of Flamborough Lighthouse are organised by East Riding of Yorkshire Council under licence from the Corporation of Trinity House.

Plenty of parking by the lighthouse. Good café. To the left of the lighthouse is the beach. You can walk down there but on a wet day or where it has been raining take care. You can see arches to the furthest point of the...More

It was a lovely view, clean visitors toilets, but could do with nicer things in the gift shop. Maybe more locally made products.

Be prepared, it's muddy underfoot. Windy and very exposed, but if you are prepared for all that it's a lovely place to get out and have a walk. The scenery is rugged, the caves are intriguing, with lots of photo opportunities. You can get down...More

In my opinion this is the best place in the whole world. Lovely walks, lovely views, a lovely cafe/restaurant on site. I love the east coast, especially Flamborough lots of childhood holiday memories of the cliffs & the lighthouse. Lovely lovely place :)

The lighthouse wasn’t open when we visited in November but the views from the top of the cliff were stunning and we took a walk down the steps to the beach (not advisable with small children). We were staying just along the road outside Filey...More

Having been to Bridlington frequently but never to Flamborough I couldn't have picked a lovelier autumn day for our visit. Being midweek and out of season the lighthouse is closed to the public, but the headlands around the area are inviting for short strolls or...More
