Coastal getaways make for the perfect holidays for the sightseers, watersport enthusiasts and of course those who are in need of a relaxing time-out from the city rush. There’s nothing quite like the sea breeze, beautiful piers and a number of quirky festivals to make your vacation really count. Soak in the breath-taking view that’ll greet you from the Brighton Pier, visit Alnwick castle for some historic immersion of age-old paintings, furniture and ceramics and stop by Bognor Birdman for an eccentric to-do!
