The British Seaside Holiday Kathryn Ferry - available now!

Almost every British person has fond memories of holidays at the seaside. Quintessential elements such as seaside donkeys and sickly sticks of rock are easily identifiable ingredients of a tradition that has constituted the British holiday for generations. This book takes a nostalgic journey through the promenades, deckchairs and sandcastles to discover how ordinary people spent their seaside holidays.

Holidaymakers were offered accommodation in the form of hotels, bed and breakfasts, caravan parks, camp sites and holiday camps. Entertainment abounded in the form of funfairs, ballrooms, observation towers, piers and amusement arcades, offering generations an annual trip filled with rare luxuries. All these things were built around the basic feeling of wellbeing provided by sunbathing on the beach and swimming in the sea, which was undoubtedly the basic draw for most holidaymakers. Kathryn Ferry outlines the history of the British holiday by the sea, explaining how people travelled to the seaside, the places where they stayed, the things they did for entertainment, the changes in the seaside holiday over time, and just what it is about the seaside that has continued to attract holidaymakers over the century from 1870 to 1970.
