Bridlington was a rural district in the East Riding of Yorkshire in England from 1894 to 1974.[1] It covered a coastal area, and surrounded the municipal borough of Bridlington on its land borders. The district covered Flamborough and Flamborough Head.

The district was created by the Local Government Act 1894.[1] It picked up part of the Sherburn Rural District when that was abolished in 1935 by a County Review Order made under the Local Government Act 1929.[1] At the same time parts of the district were transferred to Bridlington and Filey urban districts.[1]

It was abolished in 1974, under the Local Government Act 1972. The district was split between the new districts of North Wolds in Humberside and Scarborough in North Yorkshire.
