Get your buckets and spades ready

Multi-coloured beach huts, cheeky postcards, whoops of glee from the children on the beach, and the tang of sharp, sweet vinegar on hot, salty chips wrapped in paper. Seaside resorts deliver every treat to our senses. English seaside resorts have a special place in our hearts, as they are where childhood memories are made. The seaside resorts in England represent escape and pure pleasure for grown-ups and kids alike. Surely no one can resist the lure of the pier, with its bright lights and music and irresistible waft of fresh doughnuts in the air.
