A 5 mile 'there and back' walk taking in the Flamborough Lighthouse and weather station, the arrow-shaped headland and a walk to North Landing, after optionally visiting the small beach at Flamborough (tide permitting). There are excellent coastal and countryside views on offer, and a very photogenic lighthouse.

The walk has several steep climbs and descents, some with steps. Most of the paths are grass tracks and moorland style paths, so may be muddy after heavy rains. Caution is suggested if it is particularly windy as there is no shelter from the wind. The cliff top path is also used a by cyclists.

The Flamborough headland is clearly signposted (B1259) from Flamborough village. Flamborough village is reached from the B1229 if coming from Filey via Bempton or the B1255 if coming from Bridlington. Car parking is near the lighthouse and is pay and display with a maximum stay of three hours. Toilets are also provided in the car park. Nearest post code YO15 1AR.

On leaving the car park head down the tarmac path past the lighthouse (on your left). When you reach the weather station turn right and follow the path towards the arrow shaped headland. The headland is a very unusual and interesting shape. The lighthouse is trig point [TP8769 - SE97-INT006].

Return back to the weather station and enjoy the view from there. The weather station is also a trig point [TP7269 - FLA1]. If it happens to be foggy it may be sounding a fog horn.

Make your way back to the lighthouse and pass it on your right. Take the steps/path down towards the beach. Tide permitting you can visit the beach by descending the steep metal steps. It is only a small beach, but you get a good close up view of the cliffs.

Climb up the steps to the square platform area and take the path to the right. At the next junction turn right again. You will pass a war time pill box. Follow this path past the golf course, which is on your left. Once the path turns to the left keep looking back as you get excellent views of the lighthouse and cliffs.

There are many interesting views of the worn away cliff faces which can be seen as you proceed.

Follow this path around all the twists and turns until you reach the view over North Landing. Branch to the right a short while to get the best view of the caves in the opposite cliff face.

Make your way back along the cliff tops the way you came. When nearly back at Flamborough, carry straight on (turning left will take you back to the beach). Note the interesting steps that were used for taking the ammunition to the pill boxes. The final stop is to look at the memorial plaque that commemorates a famous sea battle.

From here you can see your destination, where the walk began. Before you leave the headland be sure to stop your car near the other lighthouse/tower/lookout station that is on the right as you leave the headland. This is also a trig point [TP3194 - S6327]. There is a space at the side of the road to stop (for a moment or two).
