The Living Seas Centre is Yorkshire Wildlife Trust's first dedicated marine education centre, showcasing the rich undersea habitats of the North Sea around Flamborough Head. A place to make for if you want to learn more about the fascinating marine species that live in these rich waters.

The UK's largest shellfish (crab and lobster) fishery is based close by, at Bridlington. Find out why the upwellings caused by circulating currents off the headland supports such a huge variety of life, watch widescreen video of the undersea kelp forest and chalk reef habitats and their colourful populartions, or join one of the rockpooling events that are run from the Centre to get up close to the smaller inhabitants of the sheltered bay at South Landing. A great place to bring children and hot drinks are available from the centre.
