Family Friendly Things to do in Bridlington

We’ve just been on a long weekend break to Bridlington/Flamborough and honestly have come away amazed by the amounts of things there are to do in the area. Long term we’ll definitely look at booking a longer break there, but in the three days we had we got to experience some really lovely, family-friendly places, and I’ve detailed them below for you. 

Bridlington South Beach

For those wanting a beach with the necessary amenities (toilets, ice-cream, café), but that isn’t littered with endless arcades and fairground rides, then this is the beach for you. It feels ENDLESS, with miles of golden sand and blue surf. Lifeguards are positioned at intervals to watch over sea-swimmers, and toilets, showers, and a simple café serving the standard beach foods are nearby. The beach is wheelchair (and pram) accessible and I love that it has a small splash pool too – perfect for little ones who can’t make full use of the sea yet.  There is free parking if you utilise one of the side streets, or promenade parking costs £6 for 24 hours

    Pirate Ship Ride

At the harbour in Bridlington there are various boat rides that can be booked but the pirate ship is one for the little ones! For a first trip at sea, it’s perfect! Just £2.50 per person and only a short journey to get their sea legs started. No need to pre-book either – just turn up and join the queue!

Bridlington North Beach

For those that love the hustle and bustle of an amusement pier, this place is for you! Filled to the brim with fairground rides, arcade centres and various entertainment zones, this family-friendly place will have you sliding money into slots in desperate attempts to win tickets – and tickets mean prizes! Bowling, fairgrounds, VR experiences, slot machines, and arcade games can all be found in this short promenade space as well as a variety of fast-food places to eat. At night time it looks fab! There’s free parking for three hours on the north beach promenade, or park further into the centre for pay and display parking.

Rock Pooling at South Landing

The views at this place are simply gorgeous. There’s a loooong hill leading down to the actual beach (which you’ll have to walk back up again so be mindful of that with little ones/wheelchairs/prams), but the beach once you get there is stunning. You get a great view of the white cliffs, soft sandy shore, and there is an expanse of rockpools to go hunting in - we found all sorts from crabs to jellyfish and could easily have spent most of the day there. There is a small shop selling ice-creams/snacks and RNLI memorabilia (so pack a picnic if you’d like more), and parking is £4.50 for 24hours. There is access to clifftop walks and the lifeboat station is also there so you’ll get the joy of watching the tractors send them out and pull them back in sporadically throughout the day.

Dinosaur World Adventure Experience

We have Dino lovers in this family so when the kids spotted this, they were all over it, but it actually turned out to be so much fun! Tucked away in a side street of Bridlington town centre, this place offers a walk-through experience filled with moving bridges, animatronic dinosaurs, climbing walls and a mirror maze! It costs £2 under 1m and £3 for those that are taller than that, so a bargain too! NB: some sections contain strobe lighting.
