Bridlington is situated along the Gypsey Race River, around 24 miles north of Kingston upon Hull, on the North Sea Coast of Yorkshire. The town still has a working harbour and is noted for its shellfish. This is an old settlement that dates back to the Bronze Age and Roman times.
Whilst Bridlington has a good beach and tourist potential this has not been fully maximised and the town is a poor neighbour by comparison with Scarborough. The emphasis seems to have been on capturing the lower end of the tourist market with amusement arcades and economical eating places along the sea front.
The long promenade, its award winning sandy beaches and the harbour still make this location appealing.
