  This curious Victorian seaside resort is the only place in Britain to have a name ending in an exclamation mark!

Originally it only had a single hotel that took its title from Charles Kingsley's book of the same name.

A great bonus is that the village boasts a splendid beach that stretches for two miles in front of a promenade protected by a famous ridge of pebbles.

Nearby Northam Burrows Country Park boasts a large expanse of dunes.
