Deckchairs on the beach

Very typically English!

By Ray & Raquel, Kiwi tourists

"After walking down St James Street and heading left towards the pier, you come across the beach. This was our first view of what we had expected to see; two stripey deck chairs facing seaward, very typically English! It is the impression which a lot of foreigners have when you think of the English seaside - stripey deckchairs. The thing about it which struck us in particular was that it was very cold and no one was sitting on them."
