Time for a break? There’s nothing more refreshing than a British seaside getaway. There’s so much to explore along our beautiful British coast - from the amusement-lined promenades and vibrant seafronts of our family resorts to the peace and tranquility of our picturesque fishing villages. From Cornwall to Blackpool, there's something for everyone on a British beach break.
Indulge in some good old-fashioned Victorian fun with a break in elegant Eastbourne. Take a donkey ride along the beach, explore the original Victorian pier or catch a Punch and Judy show – then polish off some scrumptious fish and chips. While you’re in town, you could even explore the West Sussex countryside - head on up to Arundel Castle for the prettiest views.
There’s sea, surf and sports right outside our Exmouth Seafront hotel – watersports, that is. Ride the waves for that rush of adrenaline and try your hand at everything from paddleboarding to windsurfing to kitesurfing. Afterwards, take a relaxing stroll along the stunning cliffs of the Jurassic Coast - one of the natural wonders of the world.
Clacton-on-Sea is a classic family favourite – a lovely stretch of golden sand jam-packed with things to do. Explore the famous pier, try your luck on the slot machines or see what you reel in while sea fishing - there’s plenty of seaside fun to be had, day or night. The kids will also love the unusual Clacton Zoo - set in a 200 year old Martello tower, it’s home to lots of cuddly animals from around the world.
Beautiful Bournemouth is one of the UK’s all-time favourites, thanks to its miles of sandy beaches, buzzing nightlife and gloriously green gardens. Our Bournemouth Central hotel is just moments from the golden sand and sparkling sea, so grab your swim stuff and make a dash for the water. If making a splash isn’t your thing, try your hand at fossil-hunting – you never know what you’ll uncover along the Jurassic coast.
Weymouth is packed with rich history and folklore just waiting to be discovered. Explore the town’s 17th-century harbour, sample its Georgian heritage and take in the spectacular views across the bay – it’s sure to be a new favourite. While you’re in Dorset, Nothe Fort is a must-see, too - it’s a labyrinth of mysterious passageways with stunning views of the Jurassic Coast.
Buckets and spades at the ready – it’s time to head to Great Yarmouth, where you’re just a short drive from the beach. This lively town has something for everyone – whether you want to get wild at the eclectic Hippodrome circus or tee off at Pirates Cove Golf. With miles and miles of powder soft sand, donkey rides, buzzing arcades and all the candy floss the kids can possibly dream of, it’s an eternal family favourite.
Dazzling Blackpool Beach is all things fun and fabulous – from the pulse-racing thrills of Pleasure Beach to the glittering Golden Mile.

Wake up to stunning sea views right on your doorstep at Worthing – the perfect West Sussex getaway.
