A few weeks ago, we found out the location of some coastal towns that are ferry ports. We are at the coast again today, but these towns are more known as seaside resorts.
I have tried to pick resorts that have been popular for years – the sort of places that the Victorians built railways to, to connect them to the cities. Britain’s biggest towns all had railway links to the coast and these are some of the places that the trains visited.
Print out a blank outline map. You can use the one below.
The best way to learn where things are is to put them on a map, but if I just give you a completed map, that won’t help much, so grab a blank map and a pencil, and find somebody for a bit of competition.
For each resort, put a small circle where you think it is and write the name next to the circle.
- Bangor (Northern Ireland)
- Great Yarmouth
When you are ready, scroll down, past my pictures, to find the answers. If you are having a competition, then 2 points if your spot touches mine. If everyone is way out, then the nearest gets 1 point.
I’m not emailing out a map this week. You should be able to create your own version, on a blank outline map, using the coast as a guide.
