Where to go on Holiday: Seaside Resorts from the Middle Ages to the Present Day

3rd January 2020, 11:30am | By David | Event Date : 20200529

Allan Brodie, a historian working for Historic England, looks at a range of ideas for holidays for a Wiltshire resident from the Middle Ages to the present day. Options include going on a pilgrimage, visiting a spa and spending time on the beach, and there has always been an opportunity to visit a big city or ramble through the countryside. So, if you’re tired of Chippenham, Allan has plenty of ideas for day trips or a colourful seaside holiday!
