Attraction details
Owner description: A lighthouse was first built on the Flamborough Headland in 1669 but was never lit. The current lighthouse was built in 1806 and acts as a waypoint for deep sea vessels and coastal traffic as well as marking the Flamborough Headland for vessels heading for the ports of Scarborough and Bridlington. Tours of Flamborough Lighthouse are organised by East Riding of Yorkshire Council under licence from the Corporation of Trinity House.

Enjoyed popping up the Lighthouse with my 4yr Daughter. There was a height limit which she was just tall enough for, as there's some tricky ladder type stairs right at the top.

The lighthouse itself isn't a really tall one but is interestingly enough and the guides are interesting and informative.

It was a very wet and windy day when we visited but this didn't detract from the day!

Good job! :)

Well worth the £14 for a family ticket, not only are the views stunning, but it’s great to learn about the history of the place. The views across the cliff top walk are truly magnificent . Our guide was brilliant and really helped make the trip special , thank you !!

We didn't actually go up the lighthouse as it was cash only £14 for a family of 4 which I thought was abit steep to walk up a flight of stairs... Mind the pun.
We saw seals on the rocks and in the sea
Kids loved throwing rocks upon the cliffs to try and land them or knock others off. Lovely clean sea. The family restaurant food is gorgeous, steak pie homemade, fish beautiful. Car parking 60p per hour and you can use card or cash. There is also an ice cream parlor which we didn't use and a nice gift shop selling usual souvenirs and toys.
