Bridlington Old Town
Bridlington station opened in 1846 and ‘Bird’, as the town is affectionately known, bloomed as a popular resort with the arrival of rail. Over the years, the station has undergone several expansions to cope with the burgeoning number of holidaymakers descending on the town, most notably in 1912 when the Bridlington buffet was added. One of only three original station cafès left in the UK, it’s worth a visit if only to admire the terrazzo floor over a warming pot of tea.
Bridlington is still a popular haunt with two award-winning beaches, a modern shopping centre and a duo of 18-hole golf courses, all within a 2-mile radius of the rail hub. In the summer, the station itself bursts with colour as the concourse is decked out with over 3,000 flower displays, and green-fingered fans flock to the town to see the floral spectacle.
Long elegant promenades, clean safe Beachs, a historic harbour and plenty of traditional entertainment turn Bridlington into the perfect holiday destination.
