You have to visit at least one classic British seaside town with that bewitching and evocative combination of an active harbour with pontoons for visiting yachts, a safe and extensive town beach with Punch and Judy shows and candy floss, good pubs, restaurants and trippers. If you can, visit the Royal Dorset Yacht Club – full of fascinating maritime history.

Weymouth also won a Blue Flag Award for its wide sandy beach recently, as well as a Seaside Award from Keep Britain Tidy.
