"Britain's Best Seaside Escapes" is a beautifully photographed guide to 38 seaside holiday locations as well as lesser-known but outstanding coastal spots around Britain. With an emphasis on natural landscapes and outdoor activities rather than coastal resorts, this book includes not just great beaches but also areas of stunning coastal scenery, fishing villages, wildlife, nature hotspots and locations for sports. Each escape brings to life a coastal destination and the immediate surrounding area, whether you're planning a weekend break or a proper holiday. The book includes all the vital information you need to make your stay complete, including local pubs, places of interest, where to sleep, where to eat and what to do. It is suitable for readers looking for inspiration when choosing their next seaside holiday in Britain, and for couples, families, outdoor enthusiasts, weekend breakers, watersports enthusiasts and wildlife/nature lovers.
