Eastbourne has been named a good choice for holidaymakers.
Eastbourne is the UK's most holiday-friendly area, according to a study by Virgin Money Travel Insurance.

The insurer ranked destinations in terms of their average weather, hotel availability and cost, attractions, restaurants and beach cleanliness.

Researchers found that Eastbourne performed strongly for weather and out-competed many of its rivals on cost.

Manchester, Birmingham, the Cotswolds and Leeds also featured in the top five holiday-friendly destinations, but tourists may do well to avoid Wells in Somerset, the Scottish island Orkney and Bude in Cornwall if they are looking for a combination of good weather and attractive prices.

Grant Bather, from Virgin Money Travel Insurance, commented: "Everyone's idea of a great holiday is different and the UK has plenty of great places to visit, but this year it's definitely Eastbourne for the all-round experience.

"Good weather and a diverse selection of restaurants and hotels go a long way to making a good break, while tourist attractions and the overall cost are important too," he added.

Meanwhile, tourist board VisitEngland has claimed that the country has some of the finest beaches in the world, suggesting that British travel insurance customers may not have far to go to enjoy a break at the seaside.ADNFCR-2196-ID-19792822-ADNFCR ADNFCR-2196-ID-19464191-ADNFCR
