Saltcoats, usually to fill an hour waiting for the ferry home after school trips to the mainland. Troop down to the Windmill Arcade, feed the puggies our money, get on the boat. Great days

Blackpool for the big times, Southport for low key promenading (in fact I think we went to Southport to drive along the beach and then go home again)

Weston super Mare for a shit day out.

Aberystwyth, Criccieth or Paignton were the holiday options.
