The great British summer isn’t complete without a summer holiday, and holiday caravans are a staple component of the traditional English break. However, along with sun, sea and sand, there is also one more thing that brings back fond memories of distant childhood summer holidays – traditional British summer holiday cuisine!

There are many different snacks and dishes that remind us of our summer holidays, but there are a few which will always remain firm favourites, no matter how old you are.

If you are planning a stay in holiday caravans this year, a taste of these traditional summer holiday foods can really help to bring a touch of nostalgia and reminiscence to your summer break.

We’ve picked out five of our favourite traditional British summer holiday foods to start getting you in the holiday spirit. After all, summer will be here again before you know it!

Fish and Chips

2nd June marked Fish and Chip Day – an occasion set up to celebrate all that is great about the humble meal of fish and chips. An enduring favourite which has stuck around for many years, this is one dish loved by both young and old alike. It is also synonymous with holidays, being the holiday dinner of choice for those visiting Britain’s coastline.

Ice-Cream

Who doesn’t love a delicious ice-cream? Whether it is a traditional 99 or an indulgent scoop of luxury ice-cream, there is nothing better than a refreshing ice-cream on a scorching summer day.

Candyfloss and Doughnuts

Popular among children, in particular, sweet treats like candyfloss and doughnuts can be found in seaside resorts, amusement arcades and fairgrounds up and down the country. The sugar rush and buzz from these sugary goodies is a great way to relive the taste of your childhood years.

Cornish Pasties or a Cream Tea

Cornwall is a popular holiday destination, and thanks to its stunning scenery it isn’t hard to see why. However, the county is also home to several culinary delights – Cornish pasties and the delicious cream tea!

Rock

No list of great British summer holiday treats would be complete without a stick of rock or two. Sticks of rock have long been the go-to sweet for those visiting the seaside – whether it is a striped piece of colourful rock or a stick of traditional Blackpool rock, it still remains one of the most iconic things associated with the British summer holiday.
