Blackpool – the UK’s favourite seaside resort

If you’re staying in the UK this year and fancy a seaside holiday, you might want to take note of a survey conducted by Which? Holiday.

The independent survey questioned more than 4000 members of the general public to determine their favourite seaside resort. Topping the list was Blackpool, which was described by one respondent as “simply breathtaking”, while, a favourite of mine, Brighton, featured second on the list.

According to the survey 40% of UK adults took a trip to the seaside last year, and that number is expected to increase this year – respondents said they were more likely to visit the seaside in 2010 than in 2009.

The Which? Holiday top ten seaside resorts were:

  1. Blackpool
  2. Brighton
  3. Whitby
  4. Bournemouth
  5. Scarborough
  6. Newquay
  7. Torquay
  8. St Ives
  9. Skegness
  10. Great Yarmouth
