The UK beach town with the best fish and chips in the country has hotel rooms on sale from £35pp a night | The Sun

THERE is no better way to end a day at the beach than with some good old fish and chips.

And the 'best fish 'n' chips in the country' can be found in a little-known seaside town.

Whitehead’s Fish & Chips in Hornsea, East Yorkshire, was named the UK's best chippy takeaway at this year's National Fish & Chip Awards.

Some of the restaurant's customers take it even further, saying they serve the best chippy dinners ever.

One wrote on TripAdvisor: "We visit here on a regular basis as it’s the best fish and chips you will ever have! Hence why they won the best chippy in the UK and very well deserved too."

Another said: "The fish was absolutely amazing with a light and crispy batter, and the fish was succulent and fresh with tartare sauce bread and butter and a pot of tea included in the price.

They say, "With its peaceful Blue Flag beach, quaint promenade and towering Victorian folly, Hornsea is a quintessential British seaside resort."

The folly mentioned is Bettison's Folly, which is also known as Bettison's Tower and the Forgotten Folly.

It was built in the mid-1800s by a local brewer called William Bettison in what used to be his back garden.

Its original use was for Bettison's house servant to know when to get dinner ready.

He would climb to the top of the tower, so he could see when his master was returning from work, then make his way back down and make sure his tea was hot.

However, the Yorkshire town is mostly known for its beach, which offers a traditional British seaside experience.

Flamborough Headland is visible to the north, while to the south, the Holderness coast can be seen.

The beach is either the start or the end of the Trans Pennine Trail, aimed at walkers, horse riders, and cyclists.

It also has a "charming promenade", according to The Beach Guide, which says that seals are often spotted in the waters off the coast.

However, the sea isn't the only place in the town where visitors can enjoy the water.

Hornsea Mere is the largest freshwater lake in the county and is a place for visitors to enjoy kayaking, fishing, sailing and bird-watching, with more than 250 species of birds living there.
