Why you should do this walk…
If you want to stretch your pooch’s legs on a vast flat beach and enjoy a bracing seaside walk. Obviously there’s the opportunity for a swim too. You and your pooch can blow the cobwebs away, be it windy, sunny or raining and you can both be as laid back or as energetic as you like here.What else you need to know

The beach is open to you and your dog from 1 October to 30 April.

The busiest area of the beach; from the south pier to a line extending east from Kingston Road is closed to dogs from 1 May to 30 September. The signs are very clear.

How to get there – from the A165 Hull to Bridlington road (Kingsgate), follow Kingston Road or Shaftsbury Road towards South Marine Drive.

Car park – Pay and Display street parking on South Marine Drive near the Spa theatre. At busier holiday times, it may be easier to use one of the main car parks in Bridlington.

Start – from the Spa theatre, head first for the promenade then southwards along the beach. At peak holiday times when dogs are not allowed on the beach near the theatre, simply walk further along the promenade before making for the sands.

Length/time – as long as you like

Terrain/difficulty – EASY, fine flat sand, the beach is very clean and easy to walk on.

Dog friendliness – great beach to run around, normally not busy in the winter.  Dog bins available near the beach.

Food and drink – nearest dog friendly pub is the Ship Inn at Sewerby, see Directories for details.

Public toilets available in Bridlington.

Other interesting info:

Bridlington was a popular holiday destination for West Yorkshire workers and the first hotel was opened in 1805. Much later in 1846 a railway station was opened between the Quay and the town.  The town was brought up to date in 1995 when a new Spa Promenade was opened.

The port still has a lucrative export markets for shell fish to France, Spain and Italy, said to be worth several million pounds a year.

    Go further up the coast to Filey and Hunmanby Gap, accessible all year round. Very pleasant with little cafe perched on the dunes.

    Even better is Wilsthorpe beach which leads you onto the south beach at Brid. During the summer you can park at the park and ride and go straight onto the dog friendly beach all year round. Your parking ticket gets you on the land train into Brid or you can walk all the way along the beach. In winter the park and ride isn’t open but still the best beach we have found to walk on summer or winter!

A lot of walking up steep hills over rugged terrain, and some scrambling up rocks. Distance from 6 miles upwards.
