visiting Bempton cliffs and Spurn point


A full day tour taking in two contrasting areas of the Yorkshire coast, the high chalk cliffs of Flamborough (including Bempton cliffs RSPB reserve with is gannets and puffins, and the 3 mile (5km) long sand spit of Spurn separating the North sea from the Humber estuary. En route we will make optional stops at Skidby mill, Beverley and or Bridlington. This tour afford opportunities for coastal photography and bird watching as well as (optional) bracing coastal walks. We will pass a number of places where lunch can be taken with a choice of local seafood (especially fresh crab from Flamborough: can be taken in pub or 'al fresco') or Fish and Chips (from Bridlington or Hornsea)

Morning pick up before driving the short way (20mins) to Skidby mill, with an optional drive across the Humber bridge (toll). A short stop at the mill followed by another short drive (20 mins) to Beverley with a choice of activities (minster, coffee, shops or market) for half an hour. Then a longer drive (50mins) to Bempton cliffs to view the seabird colony. Time at Bempton can be from 30-90 minutes followed by a short drive to (10 mins) Flamborough North landing or Thornwick Bay, where we can walk downto the beach or take a walk to see the views.
A longer drive south (90 mins) can be broken with a stop for lunch in the seaside towns of Bridlington or Hornsea. A short optional boat trip might be added in Bridlington if we have been quick at Bempton. The final stop of the day wil be at Spurn, where the road continues for 3 miles over sanddunes. Stops can be made to walk on either side of the spit, visit bird hides, spot seals and admire the lighthouse. return to Hull (40 mins)

A Recent Review of this tour

This was a fantastic trip! My son, my husband and myself are nature lovers and we accompanied Keith on a wildlife tour in Hull. He was an excellent company, very quick to answer any inquiries and very knowledgeable indeed. We learned important information about plants, birds, fossils in addition to the geography and history of the area. We enjoyed seeing new species, such as the Seal, the Grouse (in the moorland) and the Gannet (in Bempton Cliffs). I definitely recommend Keith and this lovely tour.
