Our viewing platforms do have the 'wow' factor - the vistas from them are spectacular whatever the season. During October there are still gannets to be seen and sometimes seals and porpoises can be spotted too. And whatever the season, the vistas are spectacular along...More

The gannets are spectacular and are with us until the end of the month. However, puffins are on the cliffs between April and early August.

Much better than 30years ago. Good safe viewing platforms, good Information boards and volunteers around who you can talk to about what you're seeing. You park then pay admission so you needn't worry about expiry timeMore

This is a cliff top walk with no beach around. You need to travel to Scarborough Filey or Bridlington for beach access
