Aldeburgh

I'm not going to try to convince you that Aldeburgh in Suffolk is the most exciting place on the planet. But the lovely sand and shingle beach, old charm of seaside resort and one of the best fish and chips in Britain should be enough for a say trip or even a relaxed weekend.

Aldeburgh Fish & Chip Shop is a family business, run successfully since 1967. The owners now have three locations and you will have to queue to every single one. There are many enthusiasts of battered fresh fish and crispy chips made of local potatoes. The prices are really good, too.

The meal is perfect to be enjoyed on the beach. Just watch out for other enthusiasts of Alderburgh delicacies - greedy seagulls. I'm generally afraid of birds (bird apocalypse is coming, mark my words), but these seagulls really are even more daring than any other birds I've encountered.
