Flamborough Castle was possibly a 12th century fortification, in 1180-93 a 'constabularius' is documented here. In 1351 Marmaduke Constable founded the chalk castle, when King Edward III granted him a licence to crenellate. The earlier clay rampart and ditch, was strengthen by a fortified rectangular manor house, with a vaulted basement and a chalk curtain wall. In 1537, the complex is said to have included a tower, a hall, a 'great parlour', a 'lord's parlour', a chapel, a court house, a mill house, and a great barn. Now only surrounded by earthworks, the three remaining walls of the Danish Tower, stand to first floor level. 4 miles south-west is The Bayle and 10 miles north-west is Hunmanby Castle.
Flamborough Castle is located in the village centre, off Tower Street. 33 miles north-east of Hull, on the A165-B1255.
