There are no two ways about it, once you have a family the cost of a getaway or even a short weekend break goes up. The rate at which it multiplies even seems to go beyond the amount of extra bodies you have now accumulated and so too does the amount of stuff you find yourself taking with you. It’s nice to go on holiday, but with such a high cost involved with not just the trip itself, but the daytrips and entertainment during your stay, it means that many families just can’t afford it.
There is a way to have a break this summer and not have to remortgage for the privilege - simply look a little closer to home rather than heading straight for the nearest airport or dock. British seaside holidays are becoming popular once more, with Brighton being a firm favourite since the Victorian times. Simply book a hotel for your seaside holiday and chose some cheap and free activities to entertain the family during your stay and have a summer holiday to remember.
Brighton beach is in the top 10 beach destinations in the world and has a blue flag award for water and beach quality. There is no sand here to make castles from but there is still plenty of fun to be had collecting the funniest shaped stones, skimming them across the sea and ducking in and out of the waves as they come in. Kids of all ages, and adults, love the beach, and the best part about it is that it’s all completely free. If you are feeling brave then why not take a dip in the beautifully clean water - it’s only a little chilly in there!
