Disability Horizons, the online magazine, has voted Bridlington, on the Yorkshire coast as one of it’s five recommended accessible UK holiday destinations. Here’s what they had to say about the town:
Ah, Bridlington. Brid-bados, if you will. Located along the coast in East Yorkshire, here you’ll find all the components of a traditional seaside holiday: long stretches of sandy beaches, amusements and arcades, and award-winning fish and chips at every corner.
If you’re searching for wheelchair accessible holidays, Bridlington’s seafront promenade (pictured at the top and just above) is lovely and smooth if you use mobility aids, and there are also plenty of benches available for whenever you’re ready for a sit down.
If you head to Bridlington South Beach, you can even hire all-terrain wheelchairs to use on the sand and in the sea.
The bright and busy funfair and amusements give the seafront a wonderful holiday atmosphere, but if you’re chronically ill or neurodivergent and in need of some quiet, there is plenty of peace to be found elsewhere.
Bempton Cliffs are just a short drive away from Bridlington, and home to one of Yorkshire’s most beautiful RSPB reserves. There, you can follow the paths around the clifftops looking for puffins and other wildlife and taking in the stunning views.
