Seaford makes top 10 list
As Expert Skip Hire are based in Seaford, we're delighted that our small town has made it into the top ten list in The Guardian's "10 of the best family days out in the UK" list.
Ali Batchelor's description points out that despite, its shingle beach, Seaford is a great place to visit for the entire family and has plenty to see and do. The author points out that you can hire a kayak or sup (standup paddleboard) for only a tenner for 45 minutes if it's not too windy. After that's worked up your appetite, there really are some great places to eat and drink as well.
If you've decided to go camping, there's a campsite only a stone's throw from the beach and town centre which has easy access to the beach and provides electric hookup if you're in a campervan rather than a tent. Ali also points out that Seaford is close to Cuckmere Haven and of course, the Seven Sisters chalk cliffs and Country Park. Not far away is also Drusilla’s Zoo and Paradise Park, and either one of these will keep the kids entertained for the whole day.
Forget heading to Brighton for the day; whilst Brighton is a great place, you certainly won't get the peaceful atmosphere that Seaford offers and in case you don't already know, Seaford has A Blue Flag Award, meaning it's a great place to go swimming in the sea without the worry of ending up with a mouthful of plastic.
For those Londoners looking for a day out, Seaford really is a hidden gem and it's fairly easy to get to from Central London by train if you don't have your own transport.

When we're not singing the praises of our hometown, we're out and about in the area delivering/collecting skips and clearing up Sussex's rubbish.
