Alde­burgh, Suf­folk You’d need deep pock­ets to buy a house in this town (above). But the pubs are won­der­fully charm­ing, the beach is pic­ture-per­fect and the fish and chips from the Alde­burgh Fish & Chip Shop are some of the best in Eng­land, so make a day of it. Deal, Kent The hip Shored­itch crowd is flock­ing to Mar­gate, but not far away is this smaller, pret­tier town (left) filled with dainty Georgian houses. Delis, vin­tage de­sign stores and hip cafes pop­u­late the high street, at­tract­ing arty ur­ban­ites. Lyme Regis, Dorset Not for noth­ing did JMW Turner come here to paint the sea and sky – the light is beau­ti­ful. It’s best en­joyed from the Cobb (above), the an­cient curved-stone har­bour that dates back to medieval times. More­cambe, Lan­cashire Art Deco-style The Mid­land ho­tel is the big draw here. Have af­ter­noon tea on its en­chant­ing Sun Ter­race and gaze at the sea. We also love the More­cambe Win­ter Gar­dens theatre, a rare Vic­to­rian mu­sic hall with a dra­matic in­te­rior. Oban, Scot­land This small town (above), lo­cated on the west coast of Scot­land, is the scene of spec­tac­u­lar sun­sets, framed by rolling hills and the At­lantic Ocean. It’s also fa­mous for its de­li­cious seafood.
