It's something that wildlife lovers, holiday makers and locals have known for a long time, but now it's official: RSPB Bempton Cliffs is one of the top natural outdoor attractions in the UK.
Media giant, AOL, reported that the East Yorkshire coast attraction was ranked number five in their Top Ten list of Trip Advisors' best-rated natural outdoor attractions - 665,000 attractions are listed on the popular travel site.
The award-winning nature reserve, between Bridlington and Scarborough, is the only RSPB site to make the list and is in illustrious company. Also amongst the top ten are Glen Coe in Scotland and Rossili Bay in Wales. The Number 1 slot was taken by Quiraing, Portree, on the Isle of Skye.
Visitor Experience Manager, Sarah Aitken, said this was a credit to the team, whose entire approach is about ensuring visitors have a day to remember: "Being one of the UK's best is an incredible achievement. TripAdvisor reviews are important because they're written by the public who can be as honest as they like - there's no obligation to say nice things. So we're delighted when visitors rate us so highly - one reviewer even thought we were better than the Galapagos Islands."
The cliff-top site consistently receives five star reviews from its visitors on the world's largest review site which, in 2016, received over 350 million contributions. Almost 1100 visitors have rated the nature reserve in glowing terms which has resulted in it receiving Certificates of Excellence from TripAdvisor four years running.
