Summer Days Out: Why Brighton Seafront Should Be the Top of Your List.

Posted on by Active - Mason Blog

Packed with beautiful sights, amazing food and a positive atmosphere, Brighton is rapidly becoming the go-to destination for day trips in the UK! As well as the English population travelling to the stunning seaside town, we’re also seeing an increase in people from the rest of the world visiting. Why should you put Brighton seafront at the top of your day trips list this Summer?

Food.

Food in Brighton is enough to persuade anyone to visit! It’s tradition to eat fish & chips at the seaside. If you prefer to eat inside, Brighton is home to the very famous Harry Ramsden restaurant opposite the beach. Alternatively, if you prefer to sit on the beach, Brighton seafront has some of the best fish & chips out of UK seasides. After a short walk from the seafront, you’ll find The Lanes which are full of places for tasty treats. If you’re a chocoholic, you can’t miss a trip to Choccywoccydoodah where there are incredible chocolate sculptures and you can indulge in a delicious tea for two.

Fun for all ages.

Brighton seafront has something for everyone! Enjoy the fun of Brighton Pier with rides and arcades or relax on the deckchairs with an ice cream. Have fun walking around and having a look at beautiful sea creatures at Brighton Sealife opposite the beach. Get the best view of Brighton and go on the new British Airways i360! Or, if you’re looking for a little more sight-seeing, take a visit to the stunning Royal Pavilion.

Shopping.

Shopping in Brighton is fantastic! Just a short walk away from the seafront are The Lanes where you’ll find little independent shops, designer favourites and lots of quirky food places such as The Breakfast Club and Moshimo. Not far from there is also the city centre where Brighton has an excellent shopping centre full of great high street shops. It’s the perfect place to really shop until you drop!

Brighton seafront is a place you don’t want to miss and, because we love it so much, we’ve organised a trip in August for you to take advantage of! If you’re interested in coming along on a Mason coach, head over to our days out page or call us on 01296 661604.

UK Destinations: Why Margate Should Be On Your Day Trips List

Posted on by Active - Mason Blog

Day Trips To Margate

For many years, Margate has been painted in the bad light of other seaside UK destinations; bedraggled B&B accommodation, noisy promenades, bad food and even worse weather. But in recent years, Margate has found itself in the midst of a cultural renaissance. Since the launch of the Turner Contemporary gallery in 2011, having been heavily supported by Tracey Emin, Margate has become a hub of eclectic energy, fizzing with excitement and regaining its reputation amongst the top UK destinations to visit and explore.

Great Days Out: A Family Trip to The Black Country Museum

Posted on by Active - Mason Blog

What is it?

The Black country Museum is an award-winning section of the west midlands; located in Dudley, this open-air space with live action and interactive exhibits has evolved over 40 years of creativity and inspiration into a place where learning becomes fun! Unlike most of the museums you are likely to have been to, this unique setting replicates everyday life in the 1930/40’s for those living in the Black Country. Being the first industrial landscape in the world, the surroundings, jobs, buildings and costumes in this museum are very different from those of the 21st century.
