    Great private-owned beach but 6 quid to park

    Mainly shingle beaches, but you have the New Forest, Lymington, Milford and Barton on Sea, Hayling Island and in Sussex, Selsey, Worthing, Brighton, Eastbourne, and Rye and Camber Sands, and access to IOW from Lymington, Southampton, Pompey, plus the superb South Downs.

    Worked there for 2 years, one of the nicest places, along with Liss, in the South Downs.

    I like the waterfront at Pompey, Gunwharf Quays, the Spinnaker Tower, and historical Royal Naval Dockyard, Gosport submarine museum, a good day out.

    We didn't expect to see herds of wildebeest wandering majestically, the hanging gardens of Babylon, or Sydney opera house, from an Ilfracombe hotel window, but this Ms.Fawlty didn't know the meaning of the word hospitality..hence it closed soon after!

    Would love to do a Bill Bryson, and write a travelblog when I retire, Tales From A Small Island style

    Puckpool/ St. Clare was a derelict site when I was there a few years ago, although the chalets were still there.. Seaton is now Tesco supermarket.Jaywick seemed posh in 1966, compared to New Cross anyway! Warners has gone upmarket, into hotels, the Littlecote House Hotel, near Swindon, is very nice. Haven't stayed there but they do a great ploughmans lunch, afternoon tea, and good walks on the estate.

    True, but I find the bigger, popular touristy places, such as Poole and Bournemouth, Weymouth, Brighton, St.Ives, Newquay, Torbay, Dartmouth, etc., have more money to invest in decent facilities.

    they should try harder. Staying 6 miles away on the Broads in 3 weeks. May have a look to see if has improved since last year.

    You mean Great Yarmouth!? Was there last year for work, getting the train to Norwich. The passengers alighting looked like extras from the film the Living Dead! The female taxi driver was a miserable sod, understandable if you live and work there I suppose!
