For many years now we have found ourselves heading off to Clacton a few times a year. We have grandparents who retired there 16 years ago so we regularly head there to visit them. Clacton seafront has a beautiful beach and we have had many of fun days there with the boys right from when they was a young age. We regularly visit and the boys still love to spend the day out on the pier enjoying the rides and heading off to the arcades, we enjoy a lovely stroll along the seafront with our grandparents whatever the weather, even enjoying a nice meal whilst down there, on our last visit we enjoyed a lovely meal in the Broadwalk bar & grill. As you can imagine Clacton is a special place for us to head as a family and always will be.



We’ve had celebrations in Clacton, we celebrated our grandparent’s 60th wedding anniversary not so long ago and we’ve even seen the new year in with them there. Clacton is safe to say a very happy place for us to visit, creating new memories at each visit.


So much to do

We have always found something to fun to do. Clacton offers loads of indoor and outdoor fun, we’ve had fun on the beach, fun in the arcades, enjoyed the rides (indoor & out) been out on the pier. Did you know Clacton even has a SeaQuarium? It does, in there you will be able to see all marine life species found from in and around the shores up close and personal, so a trip to Clacton beach can even be educational, the boys love visiting to see what we can see in there.

ClactonIf the weather is bad we often head to the indoor rides or for a game of bowling, it makes a great competitive game and the teens do like to challenge us older ones.

You will find driving games, shooting games, casino games for us oldies, 2p machines, novelty games, fruit machines and many more fun machines. We have spent many of fun hours in the arcades, hours of endless family fun, let’s face it no trip to the seaside is the same without having a trip to the arcades.

Or is that just us being big kids?
