MORE than 4,303 Which? magazine consumer group Connect members have rrated their recent UK trips to seaside towns, villages and resorts. Destinations were rated on their beaches, seafronts, attractions, value for money, peace and quiet, and scenery, among other categories.

Top of the pile was Bamburgh in Northumberland. It won visitors over with its stunning scenery, beach and peaceful surroundings.

Wales however has three of the top six seaside resorts in Britain,

Llandudno achieved second place overall out of 87 destinations with Tenby and St David’s, Pembrokeshire, fifth and sixth on the list.

Llandudno was praised in particular for the landmark Great Orme.

Hotels in Llandudno cost an average £95 per night which proves that “for popular locations there’s no need to break the bank”, according to Which?.

Conwy, achieving an 80% rating, was ninth on the list with Beaumaris, and Saundersfoot achieving a score of over 70%.

Swansea on 68% and Aberystwyth on 64% ratings did not fair as well.

Aberystwyth being 63rd out of the 87 destinations. It seemed to have suffered from lack of a beach and tourist attractions.
