The English seaside, a place of romance that has inspired artists, poets and writers. A place of childhood memories. A place of deprivation, inequality and poor health. A paradox of nostalgic charm and political neglect.
In her new book award-winning journalist Madeleine Bunting tells the story of our seaside resorts. Drawing on 2 years of research, she delves into their rise, their heyday and current struggle for reinvention.
