About

The smaller, more traditional resort of Withernsea is home to historic Pier Towers, a sandy beach, the Valley Gardens where festivals, events and entertainment are regularly held during the summer months, and a number of attractions, including Withernsea Ligthhouse Museum and RAF Holmpton.

While you are here, climb the 144 steps of the Withernsea Lighthouse for breathtaking views over the town and coast. The Lighthouse Museum features RNLI, HM Coastguard exhibits, a lovely garden and tea room, a local history room, a Tourist Information Point and a memorial to the 1950s film star Kay Kendall. This local girl brought a touch of Hollywood glamour to Withernsea.

To the Southern edge of Withernsea you will find RAF Holmpton, a Cold War Bunker, which is open to the public during the summer months.

Further South, Spurn Point National Nature Reserve, stretches along this fascinating land formation and supports a variety of plants and wildlife unique to this region. This is one of the best places in the country to watch migrating birds. The peninsula also has a 120ft lighthouse and is famous for its lifeboat, the only constantly manned lifeboat station around Britain`s shores, which keeps watch over the Humber Estuary. At the Spurn Discovery Centre you will find all the information you need to help you make the most of your visit to this wonderful place; ensuring your adventure is inspiring, safe and enjoyable and playing your part in helping to protect Spurn and its wildlife for the future.
