Not Yorkshire featuring at the top of a list once again? This time it’s one of our beautiful coastal towns that has been named the top destination for an Easter Break.
Not only is it the top it’s also the oldest seaside resort in the UK. Before we were lucky enough to swan off a little closer to the equator on a budget flight every year, summer holidays meant packing up the car and heading for the coast
As children, we’d spend year after year heading to the seaside town of Scarborough, excited about popping pennies into the slot machines for as long as we had coppers, going from arcade to the arcade and ice cream van to ice cream van, before spending the afternoon running barefoot across the beach. And those memories are exactly why Scarborough remains iconic to this day.
AirBnb named the seaside town as the most popular domestic destination for guests in the UK for Easter with Belfast and Peak Forest in 2nd and 3rd behind it.
We’ve had a touch of sun this morning that has given the feeling that Spring is just around the corner and with many folks planning their Easter getaways it seems exploring the seaside is a top priority.
