A tiny village on the Northumberland coast has topped a ranking of Britain’s best seaside resorts for the second year in a row.

Bamburgh came first out of 87 destinations in a survey of more than 4,300 people by consumer group Which?.

It received the maximum of five stars for its beaches, seafront, peace and quiet, scenery and value for money – with an overall score of 87%.

The top five in their survey are:

1. Bamburgh, Northumberland 87%

2. Llandudno, Conwy 86%

3. St Andrews, Fife 84%

=4. Dartmouth, Devon 83%

=4. Tenby, Pembrokeshire 83%
