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.

As we had a 4 year old she was too short to go up the light house but the area was lovely and really beautiful well worth a visit.

To climb a cylindrical structure made primarily to shine a light out to sea may not sound like the most enthralling of day trips. But the tour guides, with expert knowledge of Britain's lighthouses and a nack for explaining their hidden intricacies, made it thoroughly...More
