    Always end up at Scarborough for tea and evening stroll ..

    As a kid we went to Scarborough more than anywhere else ... we went to St Ives as we have family down there and we had a few years at Swanage mainly for the sea fishing ..

    Re: What Were Your Best Holidays As A Kid or Growing Up

    We Always Visited Great Yarmouth & Hemsby when me and my sister was little .

    as my Nan Was brought up in Hemsby and we sometimes go down now even now, yarmouth as changed an awful lot , and in my opinion its turned for the worst unfortunately. shame really .

    i just wish we could go back in time and visit it when it was nice and lovely.


    Also Go Down to Canvey Island alot to (as my mum has family down there ) . same with that seaside really that don't feel the same anymore (without my late great nan ) who died 2yrs ago.


    I Dont You About You Lot ? but i think stuff seemed much better and nice back when we were younger. what do you think.

    As I say, I have looked on Google Earth and have seen far worse places without doubt .... but then again tell me/show a Seaside Town that is'nt run down - including my beloved Blackpool and places on the East Coast I grew up nr like Scarbrough and Brid even!!!
