“In many ways, our national character has been defined by our relationship with the seaside – and in tracing its development, we can see how our ideas about health, wealth and happiness evolved. Our aspirations and snobbery, our attitudes to sex, our keen sense of fair play, our chequered relationship with national pride and our ability to laugh at ourselves have all been played out against a backdrop of stormy skies, pebbly beaches and sticks of rock. Ranging from Jane Austen to Agatha Christie and the Prince Regent to Aleister Crowley via Billy Butlin and Brighton Rock and Morrissey, Travis Elborough presents a pop cultural tour of the English seaside.”
