The Bridlington Kite Festival offers a more relaxed pace, with some of the world’s largest inflatable kites soaring above the dramatic cliffs of the East Yorkshire coast.

Each September land artists from across the UK and beyond gather in Bridlington for the Land Sand Stone Art Festival.

You can even pick up some tips from the professionals and try your hand at land art yourself.
