Why would people bother going to the coast on a BH weekend (UK). I just took some rubbish to our local tip and was caught up in a huge?

tail-back coming home to the N.Cornwall coast where we live. Luckily I know the back roads but makes me wonder whether all those people will be waiting to find a parking spot, come late Monday!!

    I live on the north coast of Cornwall, too. I assume they come because it's beautiful! It must be hard work on the roads, though. It's getting pretty busy in our village already.

      Because, my friend, not that it's any of your business, the bags contained grass cuttings, which ferment making a gooey mess, if left too long.

    The queued cars don't bother us. We take our motorcycles and sail past the gridlocked sheep.

    When I worked for the Union, we always had an extra days holiday after Bank Holiday Mondays, I asked why after a while, the Regional Secretary and his second in command were both keen caravanners so we all gained because they preferred to drive home on the Tuesday. I used to avoid the coast whenever possible over bank holiday weekends...

      You had plenty of free time with three day weeks and Union strikes.

    Beaches are popular visitor destinations when it is sunny. That's why so many people fly to the 'Costas' where sunshine is almost guaranteed.

    I had a job in mid-Cornwall for a while which involved driving. That was at a time when the Eden Project was a popular wet weather destination so there was no escape from visitors' traffic jams wet weather or dry. I tried to schedule jobs to avoid the hell of Newquay.

    Don't forget these visitors bring money to your county and keep many businesses going.
