Telford voted best Seaside town

Telford voted best Seaside town

Best night out in the UK, Cleanest City, and now Best Seaside Town, its been a dream start to 2022 for the town.

In poll, Telford Live! asked people on twitter which was the best Seaside Town in the UK, and Telford beat Barmouth to take the crown.*

Unlike the other two accolades which were calculated from spreadsheets by pencil-necked desk jockeys on work experience who had never been to Telford, this was actually a public vote.

It’s easy to see how Telford dominated the vote, with none of the problems that afflict many Seaside towns. When was the last time a seagull nicked your chips at Ketley Sands?

Even though Telford has such a small beach at Ironbridge, few arcades, and is over 50 miles from the sea, the enthusiasm of the voters is clear.

Telford Tourism office has been approached for a comment, but they were probably at Barmouth today.

*Out of the 361 voters, 50% selected Telford and 44% chose Barmouth.

    Best beach?… surely being 90 miles each way west to east from the coast negates Telford from that accolade…lol

    We all know that votes don’t count..this is just yet more propaganda to get more money in telford..never mind trying to focus on recently developed areas..the rest of the telford is in a bad way..and why not focus on the roads..nearly lost my car in a pothole the other day..

    Seaside town? Your not a seaside town, I lived their for over 20years before I moved away.

    Telford is dead in the middle of the country, the closest thing it has to a seaside town is a small pond at the town centre.

    Telford can’t be a seaside town, it doesn’t have a cathedral.
