The place to unwind

10 ideas for days out while staying at South Cliff

Bridlington Beaches

Everyone loves a day on the beach with the family, either making a day of it with a picnic, going rock pooling with the kids or just taking a relaxing walk with the dog. The award winning beaches are renowned for their miles of golden sand, modern clean accessible changing, showers and toilet facilities and the flat promenades which stretch for miles.

Sewerby Hall and Gardens

The stately home and grounds offer a great mix of heritage, interactive trails, play features and best of all, the zoo. Step back in time in the house and learn about the history of the Lloyd-Graeme family. Be entertained in the zoo with the friendly penguins, pygmy goats and Eccy the parrot, who is always keen to chat.

Relax in the Walled and Rose Gardens and be amazed by the giant monkey puzzle trees in the Pleasure Gardens. Don't miss a freshly baked scone and cup of tea in the Clock Tower Café - it certainly is a great day out for the whole family.

Bondville Model Village

This is Bridlington's miniature masterpiece, with over 200 buildings, including a castle, ruined abbey and harbour. See the villagers going about their everyday lives. Watch the Thomas the Tank Engine train pull its carriages around the village and across the river, where fishing boats and cruisers are moored! Its cottages, houses and shops are lovingly hand-crafted and give a taste, in miniature, of traditional village life. Bondville Model Village website
