Bempton is the gateway to one of the best seabird experiences anywhere in the UK.

The white chalk cliffs of Bempton are 400 feet high, and support one of the largest colonies of seabirds on the UK coast.

The chalk has made the perfect nesting environment for the birds.

  • Portland Bill is a gateway for thousands of migratory birds visiting the UK in the spring.

"We're in for a treat at the coast as we explore some of the most stunning habitats on offer here in the British Isles.

"We're obviously spoilt for choice when it comes to great coastal locations. Why not get out to our rocky coastlines which are rich in sea birds and wild flowers?"
