Fraisethorpe to Bridlington

in Bridlington in East Yorkshire

Walking along the beautiful East Yorkshire Coast, from Fraisethorpe to Bridlington, is one of my favourite walks with my children.

Situated just south of Bridlington, Fraisethorpe is a lovely, quieter beach. You can park in the farmers’ field on the cliff edge (£5 for the day in the summer months), from which you can easily walk down to the beach. The beach is dog friendly and a good one for finding shells and pebbles or flying a kite. If you’re feeling brave, you can also go for a paddle (though there is no lifeguard on this stretch). There is also The Cow Shed, a lovely café serving food and drinks.

Heading north along the coast, the next place you come to is South Shore, about three miles away. This is the start of Bridlington, where you’ll find more good cafés and rest stops. Walking further north, you reach Bridlington’s South Beach. Take the land train from South Shore to Bridlington Spa or head to the town centre for fish and chips!

You could also do the walk by starting out at Bridlington. The park and ride at South Shore is a great place to park, with easy access to the beach via steps. Alternatively, you can park along South Marine Drive in Bridlington.

Walking from Fraisethorpe to Bridlington and back is a 6-mile round trip, a good length for older children. When my children were younger, we just did stretches of it and turned back.
