Little Britain: 10 of the UK’s best tiny attractions

Little Britain: 10 of the UK’s best tiny attractions From a museum in a phonebox to a theatre with just 55 seats, we pick 10 pint-size treats from Dixe Wills’s new book on the nation’s tiny treasures Burnham-on-Sea, Somerset Nothing says British seaside like a pier, and as an example of British understatement, Burnham-on-Sea’s, at just 37 metres long, has no equal. The minuscule structure looks even smaller against the vast expanse of sand and mudflats on which it sits. This coast experiences the second-highest tidal range in the world (after the Bay of Fundy in Nova Scotia) and at low tide the sea is a mile and a half away.

10 of the UK’s best seaside towns

10 of the UK’s best seaside towns The UK coast boasts more beach towns than you can shake a stick of rock at. Authors share their favourites for sun-kissed memories of summer Politicians and entrepreneurs, pirates and outlaws, Falmouth’s founding family, the Killigrews, lurched over the centuries between respectability and infamy.

Commercial ships in the harbour tower over the sails of picturesque Falmouth working boats.

Cromer’s odyssey: from Victorian escape to foodie hub

Cromer’s odyssey: from Victorian escape to foodie hub It’s the classic crabbing-from-the-pier seaside town but alongside the faded grandeur is a thriving community with a fab food scene Mention Cromer and someone within earshot will think “crabs”. Cromer crabs, a happy bit of alliteration which sticks in the mind and conjures visions of wide beaches, seaside fun and wholesome seaside fare, with or without mayonnaise. And that’s pretty much how it is. The brown crab – Cancer pagurus – is found all around the UK, but here off our stretch of Norfolk, in the shallow water on the chalk reef, brown crabs are sweeter than anywhere else. Men were launching boats to bring them in long before visitors began…

Holiday guide to Basilicata, Italy: what to see plus the best restaurants and hotels

Holiday guide to Basilicata, Italy: what to see plus the best restaurants and hotels ‘Tourist hordes’ is not a phrase you’re likely to hear in Basilicata but given its rich cuisine, stunning national parks, ancient towns and great beaches, it’s hard to fathom why this seductive region remains so quiet Imagine a region that has miles of white sand beaches on one coast, picturesque rocky bays on the other, two mountainous national parks, and one of the world’s oldest cities. Add lots of warm sunshine plus fine food and wine and you might expect the area to be a tourist mecca, busy with hotels and tour buses. However, Basilicata, the arch and instep of Italy’s boot, has all the…

‘Ego travel’ – your guide to the narcissistic heart of modern holidaying

‘Ego travel’ – your guide to the narcissistic heart of modern holidaying Millennials have replaced the sun, sea and sex of the Club 18-30 holiday with Insta-friendly trips featuring toad licking and ayurvedic smoothies. Have you become one of them? After 50 years of putting the “shag” in Shagaluf, Club 18-30 could be coming to an end. According to Thomas Cook, the tour operator that owns the infamous holiday brand, millennials are more interested in “ego travel” than pairing off with like-minded singles over buckets of cocktails, with their tastes being shaped by what looks good when posted on social media. But what is ego travel – and are you guilty of it? Here is your guide to the…

10 of the best early summer breaks in France: readers’ tips

10 of the best early summer breaks in France: readers’ tips Our tipsters love a pre-season jaunt across the Channel – it’s the perfect time to visit Mediterranean villages and idyllic Atlantic resorts, or to go walking in the French Alps Cassis, around an hour’s drive from Marseille, is a tiny port town famous for its salty rosé (not to be confused with blackcurrant liqueur crème de cassis, from Burgundy) and herb-scented whites.

20 great lake and mountain holidays in Europe

20 great lake and mountain holidays in Europe Summer holidays don’t have to mean sea and sand.
