Who? Travel editor Rory Boland said: “The UK seaside hasn’t exploded like this since the 1960s.

Head to one of the many good priced resorts with your bucket and spade, an empty stomach for cotton candy and a bunch of 2p coins and go strike it rich on the slot machines.”

Other Yorkshire seaside towns to make the list were Saltburn-by-the-Sea, which had a score of 75%, Scarborough (71%) and Bridlington (62%).
