Lesser known British holiday destinations 1

Today we’ll talk about lesser known British holiday destinations that many might not have heard of, but that are absolutely worth your time.

Woolacombe in North Devon

The Woolacombe Village beach is unexpectedly a three-mile stretch of golden sand on the sunny coast of North Devon. England isn’t exactly the place one thinks of as a great destination to go sunbathing, however it is an ideal spot for other water-sport activities such as sailing, canoeing and windsurfing.  The village itself has a lot of activities to offer as well, not to mention a plethora of great restaurants, and don’t forget that while here you’ll be within reaching distance of North Devon’s natural attractions, rare maritime heathland, hidden coves and two national parks.

Brighton in East Sussex

The period architecture and wonderful coastal location make Brighton a very captivating holiday spot. There are lots to do on the shingle beach as well as visiting the George IV’s Royal pavilion to get a bit of history. Families will love this place because the Pavilion grounds house the Brighton Museum and Art Gallery, which offers regular family events and children’s workshops. While here you can take a ride on the world’s oldest operating electric railway and visit Brighton Sea Life.

Bamburgh in Northumberland

Bamburgh is located between the silvery sea and the green countryside. Shortlisted for one of Britain’s best beaches, the massive Bamburgh beach is just one of the attractions of this place. The local pubs, restaurants and especially holiday cottages attract lots of visitors, and no English vacation spot is complete without some form of imposing fortification, Bamburgh has a 12th century monolith built on a basalt crag.
