There was a time in Britain when ‘going on holiday’ was another way of saying ‘going to the beach’. Families would descend on the seaside like moths to flame, and the coastal towns themselves were charged with finding ways to entertain adults and nippers alike. Did Brighton succeed? ‘Succeed’ doesn’t do justice to it. Brighton is the top seaside destination in England for families, as there is plenty for everyone to enjoy. You could always just laze at the beach, but there are more than enough things in town to keep your kids engaged and excited with a little education mixed in for good measure.
