Mesmerising, breath-taking, amazing, awesome - just some of the words our visitors use when they talk about RSPB Bempton Cliffs. Around a quarter-of-a-million seabirds - including gannets, puffins, kittiwakes and razorbills - flock here in spring and summer to raise their family. Six,safe,cliff top viewpoints give spectacular views of the nesting seabirds and the dramatic coastline. The new Seabird Centre at the heart of the reserve tells the story of the wildlife on the cliffs and why it makes it home here. Three of the viewpoints are fully accessible with a hard surfaced path linking them in a circular route. RSPB Seabird Cruises sail from Bridlington Harbour throughout the season giving visitors an incredible opportunity to see the colony as seabirds swoop and soar all around. In autumn and winter, when mists fall and winds blow, a clifftop walk is a great way to blow away the cobwebs. RSPB Bempton Cliffs - one of the truly unmissable British wildlife spectacles.

Went specifically to see my wee puffin friends & was amply rewarded. Hadn't expected there to be so many gannets who were amazing. It's been a wee while since I've been at sea cliffs with so many nesting birds & it was lovely to be...More

We visited last month's as an "off the cuff" sort of visit. Parking is well managed and spaces are easily found. Entry price is reasonably and we were happy to pay it as the money goes on upkeep of the place and provision for the...More

It does help when the sun shines but what a great day out. The staff could not be more friendly and helpful and knowledgeable and they helped make it so good. Facilities are great before you even get out to the cliffs and the viewing...More

What a wonderful place. The staff are so knowledgable. They taught me a lot about gannets as we were watching them through binoculars. Quite an experience, with the sun and blue sky, walking on the cliff tops towards a viewing point. The sounds and smells...More

We went here after a few people suggested it and actually had a lovely time interacting with the RSPB staff looking out at the birds on the cliffs. We saw one of the last few puffins of the season on the cliffs.

The RSPB staff were very helpful. Although we visited on 31st July when it could have been too late to see puffins we did spot one on the cliffs. Most of the birds we saw were gannets.More

Gannets, the UK's largest seabird, are with us right the way through until late October. 28,000 nest on the cliffs. Puffins stay with us for a much shorter period of time - April through to the end of July. Some hang around a little later...More

Hello - a late response from the cliff tops - dogs are welcome but must be kept on a lead. This keeps our ground nesting birds safe and also prevents dogs getting over excited and running towards the cliff edges.

Hello - yes, and the puffins were showing well today. Our daily Puffin Patrols run until 21 July. And that's more or less when the puffins start disappearing from the cliffs. So you need to visit soon. However, please... More
