‘Oh I do like to be beside the seaside'

There is something captivating about the smells of great British traditions like Fish and Chips and ice cream, not to mention the fresh salty air and a sparkling sea view. Nothing beats a good old trip to the beach. What's more is that many of our beaches also play host to small towns which offer fantastic shopping and plenty of opportunity to hit the arcades! From toy grabbers to 2p machines, the arcade is fun for kids and adults alike.
We Brits are partial to our family holidays in UK caravan parks - and why shouldn't we be?
