SEASIDE HOLS STILL TOPS
Lazing around on a beach is still the favourite holiday for Britons. And most of us prefer to do it at home, despite the popularity of foreign sun-spots.
According to a new Common Market survey, nearly 60 per cent of holidaying Britons head for the seaside and only a third of those go abroad.
Forty per cent of us take one holiday a year, but 21 per cent go away several times.
Last year 39 per cent didn’t have a holiday at all, explaining that they couldn’t afford one.
A third of those who went away chose to stay in hotels or guest houses. A fifth preferred to camp or caravan.
The least favourite holiday was the two-wheeled sort of cycling or touring by motor-bike.
