Withernsea

Charming and more than a little defiantly eccentric – where else but Withernsea would you find a defunct town centre lighthouse housing a museum dedicated to one of England’s most glamorous movie stars? Kay Kendall, star of the London-to-Brighton ‘road movie’ Genevieve was born in Withernsea, and the town still pays tribute to her in the lighthouse, on of the few in this country built inland. You can also climb the 144 stairs to the top for breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside.

And if you want more examples of Withernsea’s offbeat charm, look no further than the remarkable castellated entrance to the family-friendly beach, or take a tour of RAF Holmpton, a former Cold War era nuclear bunker just three miles outside the town.
