Family Fun at the Seaside

As well as Blackpool, Scarborough and Skegness also make for fun-filled seaside resorts in the North!
Cornwall and The South West
If you are looking for more of a beach getaway, why not head to the sunny bays of Cornwall? Discover the sea in Newquay with the waves from the Atlantic Ocean providing fantastic conditions to surf, as well as the underwater tunnel through a coral-reef tank at the Blue Reef Aquarium.
Immerse yourself in history, myths and magnificent scenery in Tintagel – a tiny village with links to the legend of King Arthur. Visit the home of Merlin amongst caves on the beach and the Tintagel Castle – rumoured to be the birth place of King Arthur himself!
With its dramatic cliffs, historic ruins and blonde beaches, Cornwall really is the perfect place to take your camera!
Or why not venture to the English Riviera of Devon where you can discover stunning quaint towns such as Ilfracombe, Paignton and Torquay to name a few.
