This is an 8 mile circular walk which includes beach walking and exposed areas through YWT nature reserve ** –  a narrow sand tidal island that reaches into the North sea and forms the bank of the mouth of the Humber Estuary.

This walk explores the splendid Spurn Point National Nature Reserve on the tip of the coast of the East Riding of Yorkshire. There’s much to enjoy with pretty beaches, sand-dunes, marshland and the striking effects of the changing tides. Spurn is located c.30 miles east of Hull. From Easington follow the B1445 to Kilnsea. From the village of Kilnsea continue until you will find the Blue Bell Café on your left.

Footwear. Sand provides resistance, so walking on the beach is inherently more demanding than walking on concrete or other hard surfaces. Please take care if walking barefoot.

Visitor Safety: please protect yourself from ticks found in the area – wear suitable clothing/insect repellent

Lighthouse saftey: Children are welcome, but they must be at least 1.1 metres in height and physically capable of ascending and descending the staircases by themselves unaided. Under no circumstances can children or babies be carried up or down the staircases, (this includes the use of baby carriers, papooses, etc.)

The lighthouse is over a century old so and some stone floors and stairs may be worn and uneven in places, and the staircase leading to the lantern room is very steep. Sensible footwear must be worn if you wish to ascend the lighthouse tower. Open toe sandals without heel straps and flip- flops are not suitable.

Refreshments We will provide water and fruit along the way. Blue Bell Café http://www.ywt.org.uk/bluebell-cafe for hot and cold drinks, sandwiches, cakes and heartier meals.
