Críticas: Shortlisted for the Sir Banister Fletcher Award 2007 'From pavilions and piers (including the scandalous demise of Brighton's West Pier), to bungalows, beach huts and bathing machines ("the first purpose-designed form of seaside architecture"), this is a fine celebration of a very English invention. The Guardian Filled with photographs, architectural drawings, guidebooks, postcards and posters, this book explores changing attitudes to holidays and their settings.

Tourism Management Journal This instructive, enjoyable, and beautifully presented book is a must for anyone interested in the evolution of the material fabric of the seaside resort.
