Georgian villas and Victorian tenements enjoy Conservation Area status in a charming seaside suburb that is proud of its past and confident of its future. Two miles of golden sand, beach-side cafes and bars, peaceful Green Flag Award parks and a vibrant High Street featuring lots of quality independent shops.
