Flamborough Head, a promontory on the coast of Yorkshire, England, in lat. 54° 7' N., Ion. 0° 5' W. It is a range of steep and in some places perpendicular chalk cliffs, some of which rise to a height of 450 ft. On the headland stands a lighthouse 214 ft. above the sea, with a revolving light visible at a distance of 30 m. The cliffs are perforated by numerous caverns, which during the summer are resorted to by immense numbers of sea fowl. The ruins of an ancient tower and a Danish intrenchment are on the summit, and Flamborough village stands near the centre of the promontory.
