The East Yorkshire seaside town of Bridlington has been named the worst seaside town in Yorkshire according to Which? consumers.
Based on the number of visitor reviews which includes things such as scenery and value for money, it came in last place.
Its overall score was only 61% which is low compared to the highest scoring beach Bamburgh in Northumberland, which received 85%.
The popular seaside town scored poorly in areas such as value for money – which it only received two stars for – and peace and quiet which received a further measly two stars. Other areas where it scored poorly were attractions, for which scored only one star.
Although it scored low in these areas, the beach scored a brilliant four stars which ultimately helped the rankings.
Filey, of course, lead the rankings as expected, with Saltburn-by-the-Sea and Whitby following closely behind. Down at the bottom of the table, Lincolnshire’s Skegness scored the lowest in the country, with Bridlington and Scarborough floating somewhere in the middle-lower section of the ratings. At least we’re not Skeggy and Blackpool, eh?
Despite the opinions of Which? reviewers, Bridlington has beautiful attractions on its doorstep with the iconic Yorkshire Belle taking visitors on trips to see the famous Flamborough and Bempton Cliffs, which are full of puffins this time of year.
The ranking system for Which? is made up of 4,000 UK reviews who share their thoughts on various locations they’ve visited throughout the year.
Jane McDonald recently visited Bridlington for her Channel 5 show, Jane McDonald: My Yorkshire. The singer and presenter claimed Bridlington is a much better holiday than the Maldives and we couldn’t agree more. You’ve got the sun, sea, sand as well as ice creams, fish and chips and more.
She recollected her times holidaying in Brid as a child, and whilst chilling on a deckchair on the beach said: “You can keep the Maldives, I’m sticking to Brid.”
