The Brontës: 1839
Bridlington, East Yorkshire

Bridlington Quay was an attractive resort and bathing place where Charlotte was reportedly moved to tears at her first sight of the sea. In 1841 she briefly contemplated establishing a school there.

In June 1849, after Anne Brontë's death, Charlotte stayed at Easton, near the East Yorkshire, in the market town of Bridlington before moving to lodgings at Bridlington Quay, staying there for a week.
