Transport & Accommodation



From Flamborough village, follow the signs to the Lighthouse along the B1259 to the car park area at the
end. Those approaching via the A166 or the A614, should note that these are heavy with tourist traffic in


Local trains run from Hull to Scarborough with a stop at Bridlington, with the option of a bus service to Flamborough or a four mile walk along the clifftop for the more energetic. The train also stops at Bempton which is better for the RSPB reserve but this still leaves a further walk of three miles to to the Flamborough village. You can plan your journey at National Rail Enquiries.


There is a bus service (14) from Bridlington Bus Station direct to Flamborough which operates hourly. There is also a bus to Bempton though this operates on a roughly 3 hourly basis. Please check bus times at East Yorkshire Buses.


Unlike many other bird observatories, Flamborough does not own a building and we are sorry that we are unable to provide the usual observatory welcome. However, being a popular holiday area there is a wide range of options for accommodation either in the village itself or in nearby Bridlington including camping, caravan sites, self-catering cottages and bed & breakfast.
