Rory Boland, editor of Which? Travel said: ‘The UK coastline hasn’t seen such a boom since the 1960s.
“Holidaymakers have had such a fantastic time in their caravans, tents and beach pavilions over the past two years that a coastal break on home shores is on the cards for many, even with the lifting of restrictions on Trips abroad.
“Prices for a stay in the UK have gone up, but there’s no need to pay more. For a low-budget vacation, it is better to aim for an off-season trip.
“Head to one of the many good value resorts with your bucket and spade, an empty stomach for cotton candy and a stack of 2 pence coins and go strike it rich on the slot machines.”
