Newquay, one of the nation’s favourite seaside towns, exudes the laid back atmosphere you would expect from a town perched on Cornwall’s Atlantic cliffs and bordered by 7 miles of glorious golden sandy beaches. It’s a place where all the family gets to relax and enjoy a proper holiday - toes in the sand, ice-cream in hand. There’s a different beach for every day of the week and glorious open spaces looking out to sea.
The town manages to be both trendy and yet remains a great family resort - all wrapped up in the most fantastic coastal scenery. Newquay also features a host of attractions including Newquay Zoo and the Blue Reef Aquarium. Those looking for a relaxing holiday will be spoilt for choice by Newquay’s many parks, gardens, sandy coves and cosy pubs.
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.
Blackpool is Britain’s most loved holiday destination, which should come as no surprise when you think about the huge range of attractions available all year round, as well as the new seafront, world class events and spectacular lighting shows.
If you are feeling adventurous take a trip up the famous Blackpool Tower, which soars 158 metres above the town, or get your adrenaline pumping at Blackpool Pleasure Beach, where you can ride the UK’s tallest rollercoaster, the Big One.
Quieter adventurers can appreciate Blackpool’s calmer side by strolling down the newly renovated South Promenade, where they will discover contemporary artwork by pop artist Sir Peter Blake and the glittery spectacle that is the world’s largest Mirror Ball in the Great Promenade Show.
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.
