Delve into the world of seabird scientists, be a bird and explore how YOU can be the future here at RSPB Bempton Cliffs. An experience packed full of ‘wows’, learning & fun.

Seabird Science

Be a seabird scientist and learn the techniques of seabird science. How do we know how many birds are here, where they go, how they live and if they are ok? What’s their story and why do we need to know?

Be the Future

To understand wildlife and to give nature a home we need everyone. Find out how YOU can be a part of a fantastic future.

Welcome to a world living life on the edge! Meet the magnificent seabirds that, for a few months of the year, call the cliffs here home. Be amazed at their stories and discover your own special story.

Be a Bird

Can you flap as fast as a puffin, defend yourself like a fulmar (it’s sticky!) and make a gannets nest?! Explore the world of the seabirds and their amazing adaptations.

What you need to know

We can take up to 35 children (1 class).

Each session lasts 2 hours starting at 10am or 1pm (flexible).

We have fully accessible paths and toilets so people of all abilities can enjoy the cliff top.

Please make sure everyone is prepared for all weathers! We are on an exposed and often windy cliff top!


Beerhouse Self Drive Hire take on the Lyke Wake Walk for HEY CU

On Saturday 27th May 2017 Beerhouse Self Drive Hire & Minstergate took on the Lyke Wake Walk to raise money for HEY Children’s University and St Catherine’s Hospice. 22 hrs later they completed it!

It was a great experience and everybody showed great team spirit in helping and encouraging each other to continue when spirits were low!

Over the course of the walk, the team split into three groups, with the first group coming in on 18 hrs (Katie & Grant) the second group on 19hrs (Nat, Chloe, Ryan & Lisa) and the Third group on 22 hrs, completing the

last 2 miles in their flip flops! (Sarah, Lucy, Beckie, Ness, John & Phil)

There were three casualties along the way and, as determined as they were to continue, they made the very tough decision to stop the walk.

Everyone agreed that this was the hardest challenge they had done, by far.  But as tough and brutal as it was, the sense of achievement when completing it was worth all the pain!

Phil Moses, Director at Beerhouse Self Drive, said “This was a great experience and we all feel a great sense of achievement. To say that not all of the team knew each other before the walk, it was great to see so many each other when they were feeling low. Well done all!”

The team raised an amazing £3000 to be split between both charities. The £1500 raised for HEY Children’s University will fund the train tickets for a class of children to take a trip to London with us.

Thank you so much to Beerhouse Self Drive!
