Want to take DC for a treat just before big move to preschool. Also have a 10 mth baby. Tacky seaside tat is fine cos toddlers love that stuff but would prefer somewhere that is not wall-to-wall Tennants Extra drinkers grin. We'd probably drive but would consider the train too.

Any recommendations or no-nos for destinations?

Whitby is quite nice and quiet ,cleethorpes is ok and the train station is quite near the sea front and only a few pounds on the train plus not a long journey.

I've been to Cleethorpes a few times although not since Ellie arrived. I think it's a good choice, there are some nice cafes, donkeys on the beach and the sweetest little steam railway (1/4 size) which goes from the far end of the prom. I always get very excited about that!

Sutton on Sea near Mablethorpe is nice, very old school seaside, just beach huts, a cafe and one tat shop, (and not wildly overpriced - tis free parking near the beach and the public facilities are nice) but it is a bit of a bitch to get to on the windy windy A road. We like Scarborough and Bridlington, the front at Brid is very nice now they've done it all up, v buggy friendly and clean.

Have a lovely time, we absolutely love the seaside grin

You could head to the west coast which is about the same in driving time - formby beach is lovely - fringed by woodland with red squirrels and the beach itself is really nice.

Thanks, there were some good ideas there! Let's hope the weather's not pants on Tuesday grin
