A national newspaper has visited Bridlington for a travel feature - and written a glowing report about the town's seaside nostalgia.

The Telegraph has published a piece on its website this week which piles praise on Bridlington's charm - and urged people to consider a visit to the East Coast.

Writer Charlotte Johnstone said she was impressed with the promenades, Sewerby Hall, the Old Town and the old-fashioned appeal of the resort.

It comes on the back of a report by consumer group Which, which branded Bridlington one of the worst seaside resorts in Britain.

But local tourism chiefs will be hoping this positive review will help to redress the balance ahead of what it is hoped will be a busy summer season.

Here are 10 of the things The Telegraph says about Bridlington.
