Funded by the Yorkshire Coast BID, the project aims to protect and promote the Yorkshire coast, whilst highlighting and connecting the town.

Speaking about the launch of the service, Bridlington Director of the Yorkshire Coast BID Martyn Coltman, said: “We are very excited to see the launch of the Bridlington Explorer this July!

“There are so many beautiful places to visit in Bridlington that often get missed and we want to make sure visitors can make the most of their visit to the coast.

“Not only will the Bridlington Explorer teach visitors all about what the coastal town has to offer, but it will also introduce them to all the amazing small, independent businesses here, giving them the recognition they deserve.”
