Withernsea Beach

North Promenade, Withernsea, HU19 2DW

Welcome to Withernsea Beach

Designated Bathing Beach which holds a Seaside Award. With toilets available all year round.

This beach is part of the pleasant resort of Withernsea, made popular after the building of the railway in 1854. With the demise of the railway the quiet beach now offers fun and entertainment for the whole family. Overlooking the beach is the old lighthouse, unusually built in the centre of the resort. The golden beaches stretch North along the East Riding Coast and South to Spurn Point and the River Humber.

Secondary Description

Withernsea is a very traditional resort and boasts an attractive seafront with a promenade, ornamental garden areas, play areas and an open-air stage for summer family entertainment. East Riding Leisure Withernsea and Lighthouse Museum also offer excellent facilities.

The Pier Towers on the promenade are the last surviving parts of the once-proud 19th century pier.

The pier was frequently damaged by passing ships until finally being destroyed by a ship called Henry Parr, which ran into it during a great storm on the 22 of November 1893.The beach provides plenty of fun for everyone, young and old.

There is an excellent selection of shops in Queen Street and around the town.

The Market has a varied array of stalls and what seaside resort would be complete without the amusement arcades including video game technology, bowling alley and an indoor adventure play area. Eating out provides many options in the friendly pubs, restaurant cafes and takeaways.


Free car parking all around the town.
