Although a long drive, starting early to avoid the traffic, it takes 2 hours from Chesterfield. This is a great reserve for getting very close to cliff nesting sea birds such as puffins, gannets, guillemots, razorbills, kittiwakes and fulmars. Kids and photographers (of all abilities) love it! Also, there’s a real opportunity to view corn buntings and peregrine falcons.
While there are no hides, there are 5 cliff-top viewpoints.
Easy cliff top walking to suit all tastes. For the more energetic it’s 4 km to Thornwick Bay and 7 km to Flamborough Head but don’t forget you have to return.
