    Yorkshire Day – The best things to do on the Yorkshire coast

    There’s so many amazing things to do on and around the Yorkshire coastline and there’s no time better to plan a visit than on Yorkshire Day!

    At Haven we’ve got a love affair with ‘God’s Own County’ with four amazing parks, Primrose Valley, Thornwick Bay, Blue Dolphin and Reighton Sands situated on the coast.

    Here’s some of the best things you can do in the area!

    RSPB Bempton Cliffs

    Take a trip to RSPB Bempton Cliffs and look out in awe at the stunning sights from cliff edge. There are 6 cliff-edge viewing platforms that allow you to get close to the action and take in your surroundings; make sure your on the look out for sea birds and puffins that inhibit the area.

    The Living Seas Centre

    Uncover a wealth of information about the fascinating marine and coastal wildlife in Yorkshire at The Living Seas Centre. There’s lots to do when you visit: embark on a Seashore Safari, create your own marine-themed masterpiece, watch under sea videos of kelp forests and chalk reefs and set off on a storyboard trail around Flamborough Cliffs.

    Bondville Model Village

    You’ll feel like a giant when you visit Bondville Model Village! With over 200 miniature buildings including a castle, ruined Abbey, Harbour, cottages and shops, you can get a taste of life in a traditional village. Watch the train set off and pull it’s carriages around the village and across the river where you will find fishing boats cruising along.

    John Bull World Of Rock


    Learn all the secrets and watch the production of chocolate and rock take place before your very eyes at John Bull World Of Rock. Take in the sweet smell around the factory, learn about the history of John Bull confectioners, have a taste of a delicious range of sweet treats and even have a go at making one yourself!

    Bridlington Bird of Prey and Animal Park

    Bridlington Bird of Prey and Animal Park is a great day out for all the family. Get up close and personal with birds and animals that you may never have experienced before in the daily animal encounters. Watch the fascinating birds soar above you in the flying display, and make sure you take a trip to see the cute meerkats, raccoons, wallabies and much more!
