Oh We Do Like to Be Beside the Seaside!

As Brits, we are known for the habit of throwing on a pair of shorts and digging out the flip-flops as soon as the sun peers from behind the clouds. It doesn’t matter what the outside temperature is – as long as the sun is shining, our legs are on show and our sunnies are on! People across the country are hoping for a pleasant summer, and while, so far, all we’ve seen is a few days of hot sunshine and very little else, there’s still time to see the full effect of our summer. Make the most of the warmer days and plan a trip to the seaside; our coastline is full of fantastic destinations that would make a perfect spot for a summer break, and with the get up and go guide from Travelodge you can plan your stay perfectly. Here are some of the best seaside locations for you to choose from:

Blackpool

The epitome of a northern seaside resort, Blackpool can be found in the heart of the Lancashire coast - and while it is certainly the most popular (and thus, the busiest) resort, it’s got bags of charm and heaps of fun to go with it. From the zoo and the tower to its very own theme park, there’s loads to see and do that is suitable for all ages. Don’t forget to enjoy some fish and chips on the promenade or one of Blackpool’s three piers!

Brighton

As one of Britain’s pinnacle seaside resorts, you can just imagine what Brighton has in store! While the beach in Brighton is 7 miles of shingle, nearby Hove has a sandy beach if you’d prefer somewhere that would be perfect for a bucket and spade. However, Brighton itself is incredibly family friendly, with plenty to keep children occupied - plus, if you’re not travelling with kids, you won’t get bored – the entertainment is second to none, and The Lanes are perfect for shopping too!

Cornwall

As one of the sunniest places in the UK, Cornwall is the destination of choice for sun lovers. Grab your bikini, your shades and a beach towel and head for one of the county’s glorious beaches, where you’ll be met with blue seas, warm sands and plenty of activities should you wish to peel yourself away from sunbathing. It’s also home to the Eden Project, as well as some of the best waves if you’re up for a surf lesson or two.

The Jurassic Coast

Running from Devon to Dorset, the Jurassic Coast is England’s first natural World Heritage Site and perfect for people who want to have more than just a snooze in a deckchair and sandcastles to build this summer. If you’re looking for a little adventure, and a chance to stretch your legs, the miles upon miles of coastline that make up this part of southern England await! From Lulworth Cove to Durdle Door, there’s plenty to explore and discover!

Take your pick from the huge range of seaside resorts that are dotted around our coastline – there are so many, you’ll be spoilt for choice!

  1. It is nice to see a northern beach on here :-) we personally don't like Blackpool, Formby is our favourite, a little further down the coast, with the red squirrel forest right next to the beach. :-) Bring on the summer !!! :-D

  2. Cornwall is my favourite spot. My six published novels are set in St. Ives--even the futuristic ones. What a beautiful spot, full of history and wonder.
