Seal Watching at Flamborough Outer Headland

We recently visited Yorkshire for the very first time, with the main reason being to enjoy the wonderful coastline and wildlife that come to it. We had heard that puffins and other amazing seabirds could be seen at Bempton Cliffs and then through some research we realised that we could see the grey seals at Flamborough too and, that you can even do both locations in one day! I have already written about our visit to Bempton Cliffs so now here is how we got on seal watching at Flamborough Outer Headland.

Visiting Bempton Cliffs – One of The Best Places to See Puffins In The UK

As a wildlife enthusiast, I have many a creature on my “must-see in the wild” bucket list from turtles to jaguars, orcas and giraffes, rhinos, whales, lions, puffins… oh goodness this list could go on and on. When you live in England seeing a lot of these involves travelling abroad but we are lucky enough to have particular spots around the coast where some on my list do either pass through or choose as their breeding ground and after seeing Bempton Cliffs on a wildlife show last year, we immediately set our sights on this as a destination for 2024. Hailed as one of the best places to see puffins along with other fantastic sea birds such as gannets, kittiwakes and razorbills, Bempton Cliffs in Yorkshire is a wildlife haven and this is our experience of visiting.
