Eastbourne in East Sussex, is one of England’s most popular coastal resorts. Its main attraction is its undeveloped seafront, which is a very unusual feature for a British seaside town. More often than not, places like this would be full to bursting with the bright lights and loud sounds of countless fairground rides and videogame arcades.
Eastbourne’s main promenade is lined with old Victorian hotels, giving the beach a calm, traditional feel. Most of the buildings are owned by the Duke of Devonshire, who refuses to let them be converted into shops
As well as being East Anglia’s premier beach resort, Great Yarmouth also has a fabulous maritime heritage and a port famous for once being the hub of the herring industry.
Great Yarmouth’s Golden Mile is a paradise for people who enjoy seaside entertainment at its best. Indoor and outdoor entertainment venues line the promenade and there are rides and attractions for all ages along the seafront.
You can play adventure golf, ride on giant snails, enjoy freshly-cooked doughnuts, fish and chips or an ice cream and then head off for a ride on a scream-inducing rollercoaster, or take in a superb show or go racing.
Weston-Super-Mare’s seaside pleasures have been delighting visitors for centuries. Stroll along The Grand Pier’s boardwalk for superb views of Weston beach or head to its indoor theme park offering hundreds of attractions from traditional seaside coin-pushers to thrilling rides, children’s indoor play areas and a wealth of restaurants and cafés.
The seaside town of Skegness is probably England’s most famous seaside resort set on the Lincolnshire coast. Only a few centuries ago the little village of Skegness was barely on the map, that was until the introduction of the railway system, which made it more accessible for everybody.
The famous statue of the Jolly Fisherman skipping along the beach can be found in the centre of town it’s caption reads “Skegness is SO bracing”.
Skegness is also famous for having the first ever Butlins holiday camp in the UK in 1936 which also helped it rise in fame and is still open todate.
The seafront is big, clean, and well served by all kinds of facilities and amenities. The beach backs onto a busy promenade, full of things to buy, eat and see.
