Seaside Holiday in the Past

The Victorians

The Victorians were great inventors. They loved technology and transport, which could help them in their daily lives. They were also interested in cures for ailments and exercising for health. The Victorians started coming to the seaside for day-trips during the summer seasonal weather. Seawater and fresh air were thought to be very therapeutic, but they kept covered up from the harsh sunlight.
