Seaside Resort Towns

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.
Regions of England
North West England
North West England is the second-largest urban area in England, which includes Manchester, the UK`s third-largest city; Liverpool, on the River Mersey, known for its seafaring traditions and The Beatles; Blackpool, one of the most popular seaside resorts in England; and Chester, perhaps the best-preserved walled city in Britain.
North East England
Beautiful North East England consists of such cities such as Durham, which boasts a 1,000-year-old old town; Newcastle-upon-Tyne, developed around an old Roman settlement and once one of the most important shipbuilding centers in the world; and Sunderland, which grew around the 7th-century Monkwearmouth-Jarrow Abbey.
Yorkshire
Yorkshire is the quintessential Northern English travel destination. Yorkshire is known for its scenic landscapes, especially at the North York Moors, the Peak District National Park, and the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It is also known for its bustling cities such as York, Sheffield, Leeds, and Bradford.
The Midlands
The English Midlands are often overlooked but are alluring to travelers. The region is full of history; many cities were founded over two millennia ago, and are some of the oldest cities in England. The Midlands was the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, helping to cement the British Empire`s global influence.
East Anglia
The history of East Anglia (Norfolk, Suffolk, and Cambridgeshire) is vivid and rich; the oldest structures still standing in England, dating from the Bronze Age, are located in East Anglia. A number of large, ornate former monasteries-turned-cathedrals dot Cambridgeshire, from Peterborough to Fenland and the Isle of Ely.
South East England
South East England is a large and geographically diverse region, much of which sits in the Thames River Valley, and here you can experience such sights as the New Forest, the Chiltern Hills, and the White Cliffs of Dover, in addition to Blenheim Palace, Windsor Castle, Canterbury Cathedral, and the list goes on.
South West England
South West England is filled with exciting sights such as Stonehenge, the world-famous prehistoric stone circle; the Roman-era hot springs of Bath; the coasts of Dorset and east Devon; and the tin mines that dot the coasts of Devon and Cornwall. All of these popular attractions are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

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.
