The Bridlington Explorer bus returns in time for summer

From exploring the traditional seaside culture to the upscale contemporary art galleries, The Bridlington Explorer returns for a second year following its successful launch back in 2022.

Launched last year by the star tour guide of Coach Trip, Brendan Sheerin, the Bridlington Explorer quickly became a local favourite, having flaunted the classic British seaside experience, whilst uncovering some hidden gems that Bridlington has to offer.

With the Explorer making a return for 2023, it will run Thursday to Sunday on the hour, from 13th July, meaning that day-riders can maximise their time at their favourite destinations along the route.

Tickets are priced at £6 for adults and £4 for children, with a great value family ticket available to purchase for £14.

The hop-on, hop-off bus is funded by the Yorkshire Coast BID, a key initiative to support with driving traffic and customers to Bridlington’s favoured local businesses and iconic landscapes to give them the recognition they deserve.

Commenting on the Bridlington Explorer, Martyn Coltman, Bridlington Director commented: “We were delighted to see how well the Bridlington Explorer performed last year, connecting visitors to all areas of our wonderful town. Hop-on-hop-off services are a great way to encourage tourists to come and visit Bridlington and see it from a different point of view, so we are pleased that we are able to bring it back this summer.”

Ben Gilligan, MD at East Yorkshire Motor Services (EYMS), added: “After the successes from last summer, we wanted to bring back the Bridlington Explorer to continue celebrating our glorious coastline – a location that we take great pride to operate on every single day.”

Along the route, sightseers will get to hop-off at many destinations across the Yorkshire town, most notably:

·       The Old Town – A haven secluded away from the seafront, giving you a place to discover Bridlington’s traditional pubs, cafes and support local, independent businesses.

·       Bridlington Priory – Where Bridlington’s history is held, illustrating Britain’s laws through the breakdown of the once Augustine monastic houses. 

·       Sewerby Hall & Gardens – A place to look over the spectacular sights of Bridlington, whilst hanging with penguins and letting the children run wild in the play areas.

·       Bondville Model Village – With Bridlington’s extensive list of entertainment, this is a chance for you to think small, however, smaller than you may have imagined, with a miniature model town with many highlights to spot along the way.

·       Bridlington Harbour – Your classic seaside scenes, with a Bridlington twist. Yachts, fishermen and little boats bobbing across the North Sea.

The Bridlington explorer will run from Thursday to Sunday, beginning on the 13th of July, tickets are available to purchase on the bus.
