From enjoying ice creams on Blackpool beach to making camp fires in the New Forest, our readers seem to have visited some incredible UK destinations when they were younger.

We asked News Shopper readers what their favourite UK holiday spot was when they were children – and received some nostalgic responses.

A large selection of readers said Isle of Wight, Camber Sands, Devon, and Cornwall were their favourite destinations.

Others claimed they did not have the opportunity to go on holiday as a child - so they created their own version at the comfort of their homes.

We had more than 1,000 responses from our audience, and we've compiled the top 20 spots.

We asked our readers, ‘Where was your favourite UK holiday spot when you were a child?’ and this is what they said.
