Bamburgh, on the coast of Northumberland, has been voted the best seaside destination in the UK – 30/04/2021

Its three-mile-long stretch of beach was awarded the full five-star rating by more than 4,000 Which? readers.

“The blustery wind that comes off the North Sea hardly makes Bamburgh a top spot for seaside sunbathing. But readers think its dramatic scenery, with an unspoiled golden-sand beach that sits below Bamburgh castle, makes up for it. It also means that the town is rarely crowded. Bamburgh scored four out of five for peace and quiet – something that might be greatly valued this year as domestic breaks have surged in popularity. It was also awarded five stars for value for money, another attractive quality for holidaymakers this year.”
