Llandudno in UK’s top 10 seaside towns for highest number of pubs

UK seaside towns are renowned for their amusements – especially arcade and slots entertainment, and with this in mind, the team at OLBG have created the ‘Holiday Entertainment Index’ to profile the best destinations to mark for a visit this summer.

The index considers the number of activities per location including amusements, the cost to stay there, average weather patterns, and more, using data from TripAdvisor, Google, and Kayak.

You can view the full research here –

Llandudno was named joint-eighth on the list, with 3.4 pubs per 1,000 people.

Southwold, in Suffolk, came first with 11.6 pubs per 1,000 people.

Steve Madgwick, editor-in-chief at, profiled the findings of the Holiday Entertainment Index:  “The Great British Summer is finally here, and although the weather isn’t always destined to deliver the perfect UK getaway, many of the best seaside towns across our shores are jam-packed with indoor and outdoor entertainment – from arcades to pubs, and more.

“Using various data sources such as Tripadvisor and Google Maps, OLBG has created the ultimate ‘Holiday Entertainment Index’ to determine the best places for seaside fun in the UK – including the best amusement locations.

“At OLBG, we know a thing or two about the best slot games for UK residents. Arcades are there for all the family and amusement arcades and slot machines are a staple of many of the best UK seaside towns – Blackpool, Southend-on-Sea and Scarborough just to name a few.

“Our research has found that these destinations rank amongst the top five arcade destinations in the UK – but Great Yarmouth and Bridlington pip them to the post with 16 and 14 recorded arcades in the respective areas.

“Perhaps more understated is Hunstanton in West Norfolk, with 1.4 arcades per 1,000 people, the most of our destinations profiled.

“Hunstanton Pier is famous for its amusements, with traditional coin push, toy grabber and fruit machines.

“Every seaside town has its own charm to attract visitors from both the UK and worldwide, but if you’re looking for some fun on your adventurous trip, our final index scores have named Tenby the best UK seaside town for holiday entertainment.

“From the town’s highly-rated Castle Beach to a great selection of pubs and restaurants for the best nightlife experience, it’s hard to look past marking a trip to Tenby in your future calendar.”
