The best place to see, hear and smell seabirds!

Each year over 250,000 of them flock to the cliffs between Bempton and Flamborough, many to find a mate and raise their young. From April to August the cliffs are alive with nest-building adults or young chicks taking their first faltering steps.

Between mid-April and mid-July the much-loved puffin makes its home here. From February to October thousands of gannets nest on the cliffs of the only mainland gannetry in England. Bempton also has the largest kittiwake colony in mainland Britain.

You can get close to the action from six, safe cliff-edge viewing platforms. Inside the seabird centre there’s an exciting exhibition area, large TV screens screening live images from the cliffs along with a well-stocked shop, including the best selection of binoculars and scopes on the East Coast.

The six viewpoints are:

Grandstand: 200 m from visitor centre/car park, easily accessible by wheelchairs/pushchairs

Bartlett Nab: 400 m from visitor centre/car park, easily accessible by wheelchairs/pushchairs

Jubilee Corner: 900 m from visitor centre/car park, not easily accessible by wheelchairs/pushchairs

Mosey Downgate: 250 m from visitor centre/car park, easily accessible by wheelchairs/pushchairs

New Roll-up: 500 m from visitor centre/car park, not easily accessible by wheelchairs/pushchairs

Staple Newk: 900 m from visitor centre/car park, not easily accessible by wheelchairs/pushchairs

 

The reserve is open at all times throughout the year. The new seabird centre is open daily from 8.30am in April, May, June and July and 9:30 am-5 pm for the rest of summer and 9:30 am–4 pm in winter.
