Coastal Activities

There's plenty to do on the East Riding coast, regardless of your age or fitness

Land Trains

All aboard! During the summer season, our fantastic fleet of land trains carry visitors up and down the Bridlington promenades. Take the south train between South Cliff Holiday Park/ Bridlington Park and Ride to Bridlington Spa every 20 minutes, and take the north train between East Riding Leisure, stopping at Limekiln Lane, and Sewerby Hall and Gardens every 30 minutes. Use them as a fun way to get around town, or enjoy a relaxing return trip. There is space for one wheelchair or one pushchair in the end carriage.

The team are delighted to have an all electric land train running on Bridlington south promenade in support of the Park and Ride, lowering our emissions and reducing our carbon footprint

Coastal Walks

Stretching from Flamborough Head down to Withernsea, the East Riding coast is home to plenty of scenic coastal walks. Ranging from short simple routes, to challenging routes across the county, you can find a number of these routes on the Walking the Riding website.

Find walks

Beach Wheelchairs

The large rubber wheels are designed especially for outdoor use, making the beach easily accessible. Wheelchairs can be hired on a full-day basis and are located at the Coastal Services Office on Princess Mary Promenade. A cash refundable deposit of £20 is required with valid photographic ID, but there is no charge for the hire of the wheelchair.

To hire a beach wheelchair call our Coastal Services Office on (01262) 678255.

Changing places nearby
If you need assistance transferring from your own wheelchair into one of our beach wheelchairs, there is a Changing Places just along the promenade which is fully fitted out with an electric hoist and range of other facilities

All Ride adapted bikes

All ride adapted bikes offer people with additional needs and mobility issues the opportunity to take part in cycling. All abilities are welcome onto the scheme as there are a wide range of adapted bikes that cater for various disabilities.

We also have standard bikes so family members/carers can access the scheme.

The scheme is now being run by the charity R-evolution and bookings can be made directly with them on (01482) 844422.

Boats, Vehicles and Power Kites

Using powered vehicles on land and sea can be great fun, but you must be respectful of other people in the area. There are certain places you can and can't launch boats, drive all terrain vehicles (including dirt bikes) or use power kites. Read more about where and when you can use your favourite powered vehicles in the East Riding.
