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!
Famous for long sunshine hours, royal visits and Billy Butlin, the seaside town of Bognor Regis, on the border of the South Downs National Park, is the perfect destination for a family-friendly short break.
