About: Long before the Victorians the Georgian elite made the English seaside their playground Discover the invention of the English seaside holiday in the days when royalty was ruthlessly dunked beneath the waves, when lodging houses catered for dukes and where resort visitors ranged from dying consumptives to marriageable misses to scandalous rakes – and the Prince Regent at his most outrageous.
