An exclusive tour of Bempton Cliffs reserve delivered by our friendly expert guides, tailored specifically to your wants and needs. This is an ideal experience for those who are new to bird or wildlife watching, particularly those new to seabirds. 

Head out on the reserve guided by one of our friendly and expert volunteers, carefully tailored to suit your wishes for the day and the weather conditions, your visit will take you to the best spots along the cliffs to view our spectacular seabird colony. 

Our six viewpoints offer outstanding views of the cliffs stretching from Flamborough head across to Filey Bay from which you are likely to see some if not all of the Bempton big 8! Guillemots, razorbills, kittiwakes, herring gulls, gannets, puffins, shag and fulmar. There is also the opportunity to spot some of the other wildlife that visits the cliffs, including swallows, swifts, tree sparrows, corn bunting, skylark, peregrine, seals and porpoise. 

Our guides can take around the less trodden routes and offer exclusive insights to the most recent wildlife sightings and history of Bempton Cliffs. There will be a fair amount of walking between stopping to look at wildlife so you’ll need to be able to cope with uneven ground. We can cater these tours to suit your needs therefore if you would like a more accessible tour or to hire one of our free mobility scooters please make the team aware upon booking. 

At the end of your tour we’ll stop in a at the back of the visitor centre over looking the cliffs for a refreshing drink.
