Britain’s top 6 childhood holiday destinations revealed

Mevagissey in Cornwall

We recently carried out a survey* on a selection of our customers, asking them to name their favourite childhood holiday destination, that special place where they spent many happy days on holiday.

The top 6 places were:

  1. Cornwall (14%)
  2. Wales (12%)
  3. Devon (10%)
  4. Scotland (7%)
  5. Blackpool (6%)
  6. Dorset (5%)

These places beat the other warmer and more so-called glamorous destinations such as Florida and Brittany hands down, proving that a good old British seaside holiday evokes the best of childhood memories.

Snapping up 3% each of the votes and in joint 7th place were:

  • Norfolk
  • Skegness
  • Bournemouth
  • Isle of Wight

One customer said that the ‘seaside followed by the sweet shop’ was their favourite holiday destination, which we feel really sums up everything that is great about a UK holiday!
