Top 10 least rainy seaside resorts in the UK


The ‘driest’ seaside resorts in the UK have been revealed – with 90% of the 51 major seaside towns falling below the national average.

Across England and Wales, 938 millimeters of rain fall in a year, and research by hotel booking platform, hoo, has revealed which seaside towns offer the best chances for a summer vacation without needing to bring an umbrella.

The best bet for a holiday without rain is Essex, home to the top three seaside towns with the lowest rainfall levels per year. Southend-on-Sea leads the way with an average of just 515mm, with Clacton-on-Sea (549mm) and nearby Felixstowe (561mm) also offering the best chance of staying dry this summer.

Further north, Cleethorpes receives an average of just 588mm of precipitation per year, with Herne Bay in Kent (593mm) also in the top five.

Margate, Whitley Bay, Skegness and Great Yarmouth are other beach destinations with the lowest levels of rainfall.

Hoo co-founder Adrian Murdock commented:

“If last summer has taught us anything it’s that we don’t have to fly to have a great beach vacation and many of us will be rediscovering all that Britain has to offer. to offer in this regard.

Of course, the only key in the works of a good holiday is often the UK weather and a week of rain can really tone down the holiday mood.

The good news is that the vast majority of UK seaside towns have below average rainfall levels. But a trip to the seaside wouldn’t be the same without a little drizzle and if the worst were to happen, another British institution can provide refuge while it rains – the pub.
