Where? – 13 – Seaside Resorts

Some 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.

  1. Bangor (Northern Ireland)
  2. Blackpool
  3. Bournemouth
  4. Brighton
  5. Bundoran
  6. Clacton
  7. Clonakilty
  8. Curracloe
  9. Dunoon
  10. Eastbourne
  11. Great Yarmouth
  12. Llandudno
  13. Margate
  14. Morecambe
  15. Portobello
  16. Portrush
  17. Rhyl
  18. Scarborough
  19. Skegness
  20. Southend
  21. Southport
  22. Torquay
  23. Tramore
  24. Weston-Super-Mare
  25. Weymouth

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.
