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.
