Bridlington Old Town

Bridlington Old Town is a coastal town and civil parish on the Holderness Coast of the North Sea, full of fascinating architecture and cultural history, famous for its role in the star studded feature film version of ‘Dad’s Army’. The origins of the town are uncertain, but archaeological evidence shows habitation in the Bronze Age and in Roman times. A must visit for anyone keen on history as it is steeped in Medieval charm which can be seen just by rambling through the streets and alleyways. The stand out piece of architecture is the Bridlington Priory Church; dating from 1113 AD, the church stands on the site of the original Augustinian Priory. The surviving nave of the church is now a thriving parish church with a wealth of historic features.
