The UK weather may leave a lot to be desired in winter, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a trip to the seaside. Christmas time is a great opportunity to enjoy a memorable family trip to the coast.
Here, you’ll discover why a trip to the seaside at Christmas time can help get you in the perfect mood to celebrate.
The sea air will make you feel great
Did you know that the sea air is extremely good for you? Taking a trip to the seaside this Christmas can therefore leave you feeling fantastic. Since the 18th century, doctors even used to prescribe trips to the seaside for its health benefits.
Not only is being by the sea relaxing, but the negative ions present in the sea air also help your body to absorb oxygen much faster. They also help balance serotonin and leave you feeling much more alert. So, if you’re looking to beat that festive lull, take the family to the seaside to refresh those batteries.
Lots of festive inspired activities on offer
During this magical time of year, you’ll find lots of festive activities on offer at the seaside. Take Brighton for example. This year, those in Brighton can enjoy an immersive dining experience known as “A Christmas Carol”. This Christmas feast is led by MasterChef winner, Natalie Coleman and it runs from the 3rd to the 29th December. You can easily get to and from Brighton thanks to its great transportation links. After enjoying your feast, you can take a train from Brighton to Crawley for example.
Other great festive activities to look forward to at the seaside include sing along carol sessions, Magical Wonderlands and luxurious festive balls.
Make a weekend of it
While a day trip to the seaside is definitely going to help you recharge, you’ll gain the most benefits if you make a weekend of it, or at least stay over for one night. After enjoying a little break by the sea, you’ll be much more prepared to take on Christmas and the stress it can present.
These are just some of the reasons why a trip to the seaside at Christmas can be a great idea. If you want to spend some quality time with the family, while also letting go of the festive stress, a trip to the UK’s coastline could be just what you need.
