About – The cliffs surrounding Flamborough head are stunning and you can enjoy great views in either direction. This is also a good place to spot wild sea birds nesting on the cliffs. If you can make the steep walk down to Flamborough’s north beach (at Flamborough head) it is a beach worth visiting.
You will need to check the tide times though. When the tide is out there are mini caves and rock pools. There are a lot of steps down and back up again though, but it is worth it. The lighthouse will be shut.

About – Beach Cove is a relatively large indoor soft play area with an outdoor playground. Outdoors they have an adventure playground with a zip wire, giant bouncy pillows, a giant sandpit and an electric racing track.
Bugtopia is next door to Beach cove. When you visit Bugtopia at Hornsea you have the option of just visiting their tropical rainforest room or you can also book onto one of their regular animal encounter experiences.

RSPB Bempton Cliffs
RSPB Bempton Cliffs is a nature reserve on the cliffs of the Yorkshire coastline. It is a very popular place for nesting sea birds including gannets, puffins, guillemots, razorbills and more. It’s a lovely spot to go for a walk along the cliff edges and to see what birds you can spot. Make sure you pick a nice clear day for your visit though as the mist can easily block your view. For children, they have self-guided trails (including a Puffin Trail, Gannet Trail and Scavenger Bug Hunt Trail) and Discovery Backpacks for hire throughout the year.

Visit a Soft Play Centre
If there’s a day where you really don’t fancy a day outdoors how about a soft play centre? East Yorkshire has 10 of them. Head on over here to take a look and choose where to visit.
How about a day trip to Bridlington? I have a list with lots of things to do in this seaside town. We even saw the boats running in January so I’m sure there will be plenty to do this February half-term. The rides will be shut.
There are plenty of things to do in Hull. Excellent free museums include Hull and East riding museum, Maritime museum and our favourite the Streetlife museum. There is also the Dinostar museum, East Hull community farm, the excellent East park, bowling, ice skating and so much more. For more inspiration and to find out more head on over to read my things to do in Hull post.
When? Sat 4th – Sun 19th April Event – About – Join us for a traditional egg and spoon race or embark on a quest for eggs around The Den in our exciting Egg- Hunt Challenge! If you are feeling really energetic, we would love to see you do The Bunny Bop, so come on down and show off your dance moves!
