Summary
From the Victorian era to the early years of the 1960s, summer in Britain meant a mass exodus, as millions of Britons boarded steam locomotives and charabancs to swap the drudgery of life in the country's industrial heartlands for the fleeting pleasures of the coast. Through the stories of the most popular destinations - from Brighton and Margate to Scarborough and Blackpool - this book steps back in time to relive the heyday of the Great British seaside. What it discovers is a cultural and architectural golden age. A time when the grand hotels, ballrooms, holiday camps, piers, and amusements were thronged with visitors during high season
