The Vintage Holiday Map

Holidays used to be so much better in the old days. The sea was always warmer, the sun shone harder and the food always tasted better. It's just a shame it all took place in black & white.

You can now relive the history of the British seaside holiday thanks to Holiday Memories. Holiday Memories explores the history of the holiday since the beginning of the 20th Century, through a series of vintage holiday photos.

As you progress through the timeline of British holidays the background map updates to show the locations depicted in the vintage holiday snaps. The timeline also includes information about important developments in the Great British holiday, such as the 1938 Holidays with Pay Act and the rise of cheap air travel.
