Event description

Description

Come and see what’s been happening in Bridlington since you last visited and how this ever popular Yorkshire seaside resort is reinventing itself.

The Bridlington Renaissance Plan aims to make Bridlington ‘an attractive, welcoming, safe and prosperous place which provides a range of employment and business opportunities, has a growing and diverse economy, and involves the community in the process for the future development of the town’ (East Riding of Yorkshire Council).

On arrival at Bridlington Spa we will hear about the progress of the ‘Bridlington Renaissance’ from a member of the team delivering the Plan. We will then be given a ‘behind the scenes’ tour of the Spa complex. The original Spa was built in 1896 by Whitakers of Horsforth, Leeds and we will learn about its development since then and see the impressive Art Deco ballroom and Edwardian two tier theatre.

After lunch members of Bridlington Civic Society will lead us on a walk along the ‘Maritime Trail’, taking us on a tour of the seafront and historic harbour with its thriving modern fishing fleet. We will discover more about the area’s heritage through art works, artefacts and information boards.

Our day concludes with a visit to Bridlington Old Town and the magnificent Priory where tea/coffee and homemade cakes will be served. (Please make sure to book the correct ticket if you wish to have afternoon refreshments).

The full programme will necessitate a short lunch break. You may wish to bring a packed lunch. The Spa Café is excellent, but gets busy, especially on a Saturday. Menus and pre order forms will be available on our arrival at the Spa.

Meet at 8am at Leeds Minster for a prompt 8.15 coach departure. We will be back in Leeds at approximately 19.00.

AwayDay Ticket ONLY: £20 per person // AwayDay & Afternoon Refreshments: £25 per person
