    I think your nearest is either Weston super mare or good old Blackpool

    Southport will be closer than Blackpool though probably same distance as Weston. other options are north wales I guess, maybe shove some options in AA route planner, will also depend on where in Birmingham you are i.e. North or South

    Not a lot between them, Rhyl may have it on actual distance, Weston on basis comparative ease of M5 route.

    Rhyl is very nice in the summer. A little rundown, but in a victorian kind of way. ;D

    There's the sea-life centre and the waterslide centre as well as the beach.

    If you want to go a little further along the coast too Llandudno is also very nice for the beach, pier and nice little shops.

    And of course, excellent for the ice-cream too (hmmm, visions of 2-year-old with sticky hands!) :-/
