Burnham-on-Sea, Somerset

Almost in the middle of Somerset’s coastline, Burnham on Sea has all the air and charm of a traditional seaside town, with a long sandy beach, donkey rides, ice cream and candyfloss galore, plus the obligatory public gardens and theatre. There’s a pier (albeit a very short one) and a functioning lighthouse built on stilts in the sand. If you fancy fish and chips on the seafront you may have a tough time deciding where to get them from, so go with the local’s suggestions and try the Battered Fryer or Brit Chips; if you’d rather indulge in a refined afternoon tea, The Crafty Teacup Café is highly recommended for delicious cakes and friendly service.
