Oh we still love to be beside the seaside … The UK has more traditional kiss-me-quick resorts than you can shake a rock at, and as holidaying at home becomes more popular, many towns are being rejuvenated in an attempt to bring back visitors. Folkestone’s seafront has been transformed by art in the past decade, while Margate was the seaside backdrop for Sam Mendes’ latest film, Empire of Light, and the Sky comedy-drama Dreamland.
So, where do you go to have fun at the fair? Tell us what you love about your favorite town, from the beaches and coastal walks to the fish and chip shops and seafood shacks.
If you have a relevant photo, do send it in – but it’s your words that will be judged for the competition.
