Bridlington is a popular tourist destination known for its stunning beaches, historic landmarks, and vibrant cultural scene. Whether you’re looking for a relaxing seaside getaway or an action-packed adventure, Bridlington has something to offer for everyone.

 History and Landmarks 

Bridlington is steeped in history and is home to many fascinating landmarks and attractions. Here are some of the most notable ones:

 The Priory Church of St. Mary 

The Priory Church of St. Mary in Bridlington, England is a hidden gem tucked away in the coastal town of Bridlington. This historic church has been standing for over 900 years and is a testament to the architectural prowess of medieval England. The church is a must-visit for history buffs and architecture enthusiasts alike, as it provides a glimpse into the past and an opportunity to marvel at the impressive craftsmanship of the time.

 History of the Priory Church of St. Mary 

The Priory Church of St. Mary was founded in the early 12th century by Walter de Gant, who was a prominent Norman nobleman. The church was built as part of a Benedictine monastery and was dedicated to the Virgin Mary. Over the centuries, the church underwent several changes and renovations, reflecting the evolving architectural styles and the needs of the community.

During the 14th century, the church was expanded and remodelled in the Gothic style, which was popular at the time. The nave and the chancel were enlarged, and the tower was added, which stands at 120 feet tall and is a prominent feature of the church’s skyline. The church also features a range of intricate stone carvings, including grotesques and corbels, which add to its visual appeal.

In the 16th century, the church underwent further changes, as the monastic community was dissolved during the English Reformation. The church became a parish church and was used by the local community for religious services. In the centuries that followed, the church underwent several restorations and repairs, ensuring that it remains standing.

 Architecture and Design 

The Priory Church of St. Mary is a stunning example of medieval architecture, with a mix of Norman, Gothic, and Perpendicular styles. The church’s interior is adorned with intricate carvings, colourful stained glass windows, and beautiful sculptures. Visitors can admire the elaborate vaulted ceiling, the impressive nave, and the ornate choir stalls. The church’s tower, which stands at 100 feet tall, offers panoramic views of the town and the North Sea.

 Famous Visitors and Connections 

Over the centuries, the Priory Church of St. Mary has played host to many notable visitors and events. In the 14th century, King Edward II held court in the church during the Scottish Wars of Independence. The church also has connections to the poet Rudyard Kipling, who spent many summers in Bridlington and was inspired by the town’s landscape and history. In 2013, the church was visited by King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla during their tour of East Yorkshire.

 Current Use and Restoration 

Today, the Priory Church of St. Mary continues to serve as an active place of worship for the local community, hosting regular services and events. The church also welcomes visitors from all over the world, who come to admire its beauty and learn about its history. In recent years, the church has undergone extensive restoration work to preserve its structure and ensure its longevity for generations to come.

 History of Bridlington Harbour 

Bridlington Harbour has a long and fascinating history, dating back to the 12th century when it was first established as a trading port. Over the years, the town has grown and developed, becoming an important centre for fishing, shipbuilding, and trade. During the 19th century, the harbour underwent a major expansion, with the construction of a new pier and harbour facilities, which helped to boost the local economy and bring in even more visitors.
