Bridlington’s magnificent harbour is a not only a living history book providing a constant reminder of Bridlington through the ages, it is also a thriving, dynamic business crucial to the future of the town and its residents.
At the helm of this very broad ranging enterprise are the Bridlington Harbour Commissioners, a group of individuals, supported by an administrative team, which manages, protects and develops all aspects of the harbour and its activities.
From the bait man to the big landing companies, from tourism to tide tables, it is the Harbour Commissioners who help to bring everything together to make the harbour such a success.
Under their guidance, the harbour estate will continue to play a vital role in the well-being of Bridlington’s economy, providing much needed local employment and career opportunities, encouraging investment and promoting tourism to the Yorkshire region and further afield.
The harbour is the very heart of our town, our community, and as well as being home to the scores of men and women who earn their livelihood here, it is also a magnet for the tens of thousands of people who visit Bridlington every summer for their holidays or family days out.
It’s a place for fun and relaxation, for hard work, for sight-seeing, for businesses – it’s a lifestyle the Commissioners are determined to protect and prolong.
