A 3 mile circular walk around Flamborough Head in North Yorkshire. This short circular walk takes you on a mini-tour of one of the most spectacular areas of chalk cliffs in Britain. If you love coastal walks, stunning scenery and lighthouses, and want your dog to be able to have a good run too, then this exhilarating walk might just be the one for you.

The terrain is fairly easy, following clear grassy paths and then ending along a quiet road. There are no stiles or livestock on route, but you will need to negotiate a footbridge and a flight of wooden steps. Remember to keep children close and dogs under close control on the sections close to the cliff edge. Allow 1.5 hours.

Take the B1255 Flamborough road from Bridlington and as the road bears left entering the village, turn right along the B1259 – Lighthouse Road. The walk begins in the pay and display by the Flamborough Lighthouse. Toilets are also provided in the car park. Nearest post code YO15 1AR.

Start at the lighthouse by the Flamborough Headland information board. Turn to the right and head towards the Fog Signal station, keeping a wall to the right and a fence to the left – beyond this are the cliffs and sea. Join a track heading towards the signal station and make for one of the many green paths cut into the rugged grasslands, which criss-cross the area. Keeping the signal station to the left, head towards the coastline – there is plenty of dog romping space here.

Keeping the coast line to the left, head southwards along the path. There are waymarker posts and information notices from the local authority warning everyone to take care by the cliff edges. Just after a small wooden footbridge, turn right at a waymarked public footpath sign for Lighthouse Road (0.75 miles).

Head inland along the edge of a field keeping the hedge and tree line to the right. As the path crosses the field, fleeting glimpses of the old and current Flamborough lighthouses can be seen through the hedgerows. At the end of the field climb a flight of wooden steps up to Lighthouse Road.

Cross the road and head right, back to the Flamborough car park using the roadside path. Close views are available of the old lighthouse on the edge of the golf course to the left, before the modern version comes into view ahead.
