However, it is still the town’s vast swathe of sandy beach that is the reason that people keep coming back and life revolves around the seafront.
In summer, the beach is an ideal spot for all those traditional Great British seaside pastimes. Building sandcastles, flying kites or taking a dip in in the safe bathing waters are all as popular as ever.
For an even more traditional experience visi the recently restored Pier which dates back to 1860. It is in fact the oldest iron pier in the country. Visitors can walk or take a tram ride to the end of the pier, which has a viewing platform looking over the estuary. The Pier Pavilion has displays on local wildlife and the history of the pier.
