Almost all of us have happy memories of excursions and holidays spent beside the sea. For many, these will have included the Yorkshire coast which runs unbroken for more than one hundred miles between the two great rivers, the Tees and the Humber. Within those boundaries are the popular seaside resorts of Whitby, Scarborough, Filey and Bridlington as well as numerous smaller and quieter but equally well-loved destinations.

"Beside the Seaside" takes a detailed but entertaining look back at the history of these resorts over the last four hundred years. The talk is fully illustrated and guaranteed to bring back many nostalgic times.
