Bridlington Old Town is a little gem tucked away in a quiet corner of the traditional seaside resort. Most people are unaware that this part of Bridlington exists as it’s away from the hustle and bustle of the seafront, yet within easy distance of all the amenities. The Old Town has two festivals throughout the year, the summer and the winter festivals, and both give visitors the opportunity to explore the Old Town. The summer festival provides a wealth of concerts, exhibitions and events, whilst the Christmas festival provides a wonderful Dickensian feel to the Old Town, with lots of stalls, artists, performers and musicians. The Old Town also boasts some of the best restaurants in Bridlington.Garden Cottage overlooks the village green and the Bayle Museum, a museum dedicated to the history of Bridlington and well worth a visit during your stay. The Old Town has retained most of its historical buildings, including the Priory Church, which is just at the other side of the green. Here you can try your hand at bell ringing or attend one of many musical events held throughout the year.Just up the road you’ll find Sewerby Hall, a beautiful Georgian house set in stunning gardens, with a zoo and woodland walks. Sewerby is not the only stately home to visit, as Sledmere House and Burton Agnes Hall are just a short drive away.
