Two Iconic British Coastal Destinations
With the economy the way it is at the moment in the UK and budget airlines hiking their prices (and charging for the loo) it’s never been a better time to start looking locally, or at least nationally for summer breaks this year.
With that in mind here’s a couple of classic British holiday retreats that are still putting smiles on faces:
Bognor has been a holiday destination for years, popular with the old and young alike. It’s a place that gets better every year and people often come back time and time again. Despite it being primarily a beach town and also home to some of the more affordable holiday parks in the UK, Bognor Regis has a lot more to offer.
If it is the beach your looking for then Bognor’s award winning beach has plenty for the whole family. A great British tradition of walking the promenade can still be done in Bognor, and with the likes of the sea front train, the annual Birdman flying competition and the epic Butlins holiday resort… Nobody’s getting bored!
Bognor Regis is steeped in history so if you get tired of the beach or the amusement arcades then head inland for some culture, architecture, great restaurants and cafes. Bognor even boasts a few theaters for those looking for a change in pace or family night out.
Another great British holiday destination! Skegness is one of those places almost everyone has been at least once. Again it’s a place that has something to offer all ages and can be a totally different experience each time you visit.
Skegness beach is a classic award winning sandy British beach, enjoyed by millions every year and accessible to all, even the disabled. Amusements, eateries and a pier all add to the appeal of good old Skeggy. Get you’re windbreakers out, buckets and spades at the ready, gear up for donkey rides or strap up for the Skegness beach race… It’s you’re call.
Eating and Nightlife:
Skegness is home to an awesome amount of pubs, clubs and discos and can keep you as busy by night as playing and sunning by day. Home to a lively young bar scene, family nights out and full on nightclubbing makes it a destination that anyone could enjoy.
If you’re a foody then it’s Skegness’s long list of restaurants, cafes and seaside eateries that will appeal. Being a seaside destination means there is always fresh seafood on the menu close by and that great British favourite – Fish and chips… It wouldn’t be a holiday without them
That’s just two of the country’s iconic coastal holiday destinations, but, two of the greats! There’s always the temptation to run to the sun come holiday time but sometimes it’s the simple pleasures of home or childhood nostalgia that can really bring back that holiday feeling.
