Harbour Heritage Museum, Harbour Road, Bridlington, East Riding of Yorkshire, YO15 2NR
Located on Bridlington Harbour, this small museum tracks the history of the Harbour from its early days as a significant Port over 1000 years.
The Harbour Heritage Museum houses a fascinating range of displays showing nautical artefacts, historic photographs and details of the harbour's history, its seafarers and fishing fleet, there are models of vessels and a varied range of visual resources. The staff are very helpful and can add amazing details to your visit. There are also video presentations of the restoration of The Three Brothers, a historic Sailing Coble. There are Coble Festivals each year and sailing cobles are moored in Bridlington Harbour.
Entrance is free but donations are very welcome and help to maintain the sailing cobles The Three Brothers, The Gratitude and The Gansey Lass that can be seen moored in the Harbour. Harbour Heritage Museum is entirely staffed by volunteers.
