About Flamborough Head

Flamborough Head is one of the most spectacular areas of chalk cliffs in Britain. Soaring to 400 feet, they are also some of the highest. And these rugged white cliffs are home to a variety of over 200,000 nesting sea birds.

There are two historic lighthouses on Flamborough Head. The oldest, The Light Tower, 78 feet high, was built in 1674. Although it was never lit, it's the earliest known lighthouse still in existence in the UK. The newer lighthouse, The Lighthouse, was built in 1806 and stands 88 feet high. Initially using a clockwork mechanism to rotate an oil lamp as a warning beacon, it became fully automated in early 1996 and has a range of 24 nautical miles.
