English Seaside Resorts

Major Cities

Brighton is the oldest and one of the most famous seaside resorts in the United Kingdom. Its broad shingle beach is backed by amusement arcades and Regency-era buildings. Brighton Pier, in the central waterfront section, opened in 1899 and now has rides and food kiosks. The Royal Pavilion is a palace like no other with an Indian-styled exterior and a Chinese-inspired interior. The town is also known for its nightlife, arts scene, shopping and festivals, including one of the largest LGBT pride festivals in the country.

Bournemouth is the largest city in the county of Dorset. It is one of the United Kingdom`s leading coastal resort towns and has been for over 150 years. The Victorian houses and other public buildings which were built as Bournemouth was rapidly growing are lovingly preserved by the city and private citizens today. You can see these buildings all over town. St. Peter`s Church, built in the Gothic revival style, dates from 1879. Bournemouth is well-known for its nightlife, and there are a variety of bars, clubs, and pubs catered toward every type and stripe of visitor.

Blackpool is one of the oldest seaside resorts in England, having been an exciting and busy vacation destination for over 150 years. It is a popular place for tourists year-round, but is particularly popular in the summer, when visitors sun themselves on the town`s famous sandy beach, and autumn, when the entire seaside area is lit up in a two-month extravaganza called `The Illuminations`. Noteworthy sights include Blackpool Tower, once the tallest structure in the British Empire; Pleasure Beach, one of the most popular amusement parks in Europe; and its iconic trams, which include heritage cars that have been in use for decades.

Just an hour`s drive away from Cheshire, on the Irish Sea coast in north Wales, is the resort town of Llandudno, which has been a popular vacation destination for over 150 years. Llandudno is situated on the Creuddyn Peninsula between two headlands: the Great Orme, and the smaller Little Orme. The Victorian promenade which takes visitors to the popular North Shore is called The Parade. Llandudno Pier, which is nearly a half-mile long, is the longest seaside pier in Wales. Mostyn Street, Llandudno`s high street, is the place to be as it buzzes with activity day and night.

WHY THE ENGLISH SEASIDE RESORTS?

The English seaside resorts were the forerunners to the modern-day British mass tourism industry, and even after more than a century they still welcome millions of tourists each year. Originally marketed as spa towns in the nineteenth century, these resort towns became wildly popular when marketed to the burgeoning, and at that time new, middle class in society. Each town features a pier on which bars, restaurants, games, and other entertainment options are clustered, and some are known for their amusement parks. Arguably the most important and most popular of the English seaside towns are Brighton, located in East Sussex in the South East; Bournemouth, the largest city in Dorset, in the South West; and Blackpool, the largest city in Lancashire and situated on the Irish Sea coast in England`s North West.
