Nope, they're terrible, read the posts in this thread. If you found them enjoyable and had a good time in pleasant company it must be because you're a foreigner, blind to all of this.So no good then? I haven't been to any north side sea side resorts (or even up much of north tbh actually). Have only ever been to Brighton, Hastings and Southend-on-sea on some nice sunny warm days as they are close to London. I thought they weren't bad for a day out on a nice day.
Hastings a bit iffy mind, as is Margate but a day out to be had anyhoo. Canterbury is a cracking weekend, good food and pubs.
