1 Whitby

Historic Whitby on the Yorkshire coast has established itself as the most popular destination for coach holidays anywhere in the north of England. It has everything you could want from an English seaside resort, from beautiful beaches and traditional piers, to rock pools and fossils.

2 Scarborough

The oldest coastal resort in Britain still has a lot to offer holidaymakers today, and Scarborough is definitely making the most of its vintage feel. Aside from sandy beaches, Scarborough offers a great look to the past, with its ruined castle and many museums. There are traditional arcades and lots of gift shops, so there is plenty to do even in traditional British weather!

3 Great Yarmouth

Known for its sunshine and sandy beaches, Great Yarmouth is a fabulous holiday destination with a rich history. For a ‘traditional’ British seaside holiday, Great Yarmouth offers everything; piers, a theme park, museums detailing the maritime heritage, and even the chance of a donkey ride.

4 Eastbourne

Popular with the Victorians because of its classic pier and gardens, Eastbourne’s popularity doesn’t wane. Visit all year round – there is always something to see in this pretty south-coast town.
