Bridlington’s Old Town is quiet, charming and unique, brimming with local independent shops and boutiques. Those seeking to take time out from a hectic holiday at the seaside will be surprised and delighted by the Old Town’s fascinating architecture, history and heritage which many tourists miss.
The Old Town is also a star of the big screen. The 2016 cinematic remake of classic television show Dad’s Army used the Old Town as its primary location, and several of the shops along the Georgian High Street featured in the film. Yet the shops here are not a film set but thriving retail outlets.
Visitors and shoppers can enjoy a retail experience that doesn’t involve high street chains. This is the place to be for original artworks, antiques, bespoke jewellery, handcrafted ceramics and plenty more besides. After your retail therapy, you’ll be in need of some refreshments. Look no further than the Georgian Tea Rooms, on the ground floor of the Georgian Antique Centre.
