Sometimes it’s those simple pleasures that seem the most magical and a trip to East Yorkshire should always include a visit to the beach. And while a walk along the sand at sunset may seem a little too cliche, it's invigorating, calming and almost certainly a guilty pleasure for most.

Try something a little different and book an experience with South Cave Falconry from Goat walks, Hawk Walks and Owl Handling it certainly has the wow factor. Experiences are one-to-one or some based on two people sharing, ensuring an immersive and intimate experience with the majestic birds.
