Seaside resorts in England

Multi-coloured beach huts that stretch for miles; silky sand beneath your toes; wafts of freshly cooked donuts; squeals of glee from children running away from foamy waves and the tang of vinegar on paper-wrapped fish and chips. Seaside resorts in England are a treat on all of our senses. Escape to some of the country’s best beaches for families to build sandcastles, paddle in the sea, play two-pence games at seafront arcades, and make or relive beloved childhood memories. Pure pleasure for grown-ups and kids alike, it’s very hard to resist a trip to the coast!
