Seaside House Buyers Now Younger

Seaside towns no longer the preserve of elderly residents due to house prices

The Great British Seaside Resort

The Great British seaside resort. A part of the world derided by some as ailing, uninspiring, and full of elderly residents. According to a survey from My Home Move, elderly people are shunning the likes of Weston-super-Mare and Torquay due to house prices. Potential homeowners moving to Whitstable are likely to be in their mid-40s.

The twelve seaside resorts that have ranked highly in My Home Move’s findings are:

  • Margate: noted for the recently reopened Dreamland amusement park and the Turner Gallery;
  • Torquay: a bustling shopping centre and resort, ideally placed for the Torbay resorts and the city of Exeter;
  • Whitstable: noted for its oysters and coloured beach huts, as well as being commutable to Central London;
  • Leigh-on-Sea: one of the most easterly points of the London, Tilbury, and Southend railway line to Fenchurch Street;
  • Aldeburgh and Woodbridge: the former noted for its classical music festival; the latter, the birthplace of Brian Eno and its harbour;
  • Bournemouth: a must for lovers of sand, sea, and shops. Also served by fast trains to London;
  • Poole: Bournemouth’s industrial neighbour with a maritime history. Also covers the ultra-exclusive Sandbanks village, home to its moneyed residents;
  • Skegness: popular with many holidaymakers from Sheffield and Nottingham. Quiet outside the summer season;
  • Weston-super-Mare: a bus ride away from Bristol, Weston is a splendid seaside resort with a mix of flat and hilly terrain;
  • Clacton-on-Sea: though close to London by train, house prices are half that of many of the resorts in the survey;
  • Bognor Regis: close to the Isle of Wight, and the city of Chichester. Well known for the Butlins holiday camp.
  • Eastbourne: East Sussex seaside resort noted for its iconic bandstand, pier, and the Carpet Gardens.

Most of the seaside resorts detailed above have direct train services to Central London. Could the London commuting belt be wider, with potential purchasers choosing cheaper homes? (Though offset by dearer season ticket prices).

How four removal men carried a sofa up to Scafell Pike, England’s tallest mountain

You may remember a beer advert from 1983, where a group of male drinkers did amazing feats for one goal. The goal was a pint of Youngers’ Scotch Bitter, and our intrepid group would swim the English Channel or climb mountains. For the sake of a pint of keg bitter once brewed in Cumbria. Of similar levels of derring-do, though for a more altruistic cause, four removal men carried a sofa over a mountain. They could have chosen a nearby hill. Instead, they went to Cumbria to climb Scafell Pike, only the tallest mountain in England, no less.
