Bridlington, Whitby & York 7 Days - Monarch Hotel
The long beach front, historic buildings and range of entertainment facilities make Bridlington an ideal destination. Bridlington Old Town is traditional Yorkshire in a nutshell. Packed with attractive antique shops and restaurants, the Old Town was the setting for 2016’s Dad’s Army film. The delightful mix of brick and stone buildings, colourful shop fronts, popular cafés and individual shops provide a relaxing environment for shopping or strolling. The town’s new leisure centre opened in 2016 with an array of modern facilities. Entertainments and art galleries are housed in the refurbished Spa Centre on the seafront. A network of land-trains transports guests around the town, along the front, and as far afield as Sewerby Hall and Gardens, a delightful stately home owned and managed by East Riding Council.
