Bempton Cliffs

A holiday on the Yorkshire coast never seems complete without a visit to Bempton Cliffs. The area is particularly popular with bird-watchers and its easy to see why. Choose a fine day though; it can be very windy on the cliff tops. (My ‘minder’ usually reminds me not to get too close to the edge!)bempton-cliffs

An enjoyable walk along the impressive cliffs at Bempton on the yorkshire coast. They run from Flamborough Head north towards Filey and are over 100 metres high at points. Over 250,000 sea birds flock here each year, many to find a mate and raise their young. From April to August the cliffs are alive with nest-building adults or young chicks taking their first faltering flights and from April to July the much-loved puffin makes its home here.
