Scarborough – Monday 8th May 2017
For a touch of nostalgia, Yorkshire’s traditional seaside town has it all. Scarborough is reputed to be one of the world’s first seaside resorts, with a sweep of Victorian buildings along the promenade providing a backdrop to the award-winning sandy beaches. Boasting plenty of attractions appealing to visitors young and old, from traditional amusement arcades to the historic castle, Scarborough paints a picture of a perfect family-orientated town.
Whitstable – Thursday 18th May 2017
Sitting on the Kent coast, Whitstable is one of the most artistic seaside towns. With a distinct character and relaxing atmosphere, it is famous for its vast shingle beach and seafood eateries. The endearing harbour is a good place to simply sit and watch the world go by, or take a stroll around the laid-back high street and browse the art galleries, museums, independent shops, artisanal bakeries and welcoming pubs. This historic fishing town promises plenty to keep you occupied or to simply relax.
