SD A Virtual Victorian Seaside Holiday

17th February – A Virtual Victorian Seaside Holiday

Greetings from The Hold

Whilst the children visited Suffolk Archives, Broadland residents were treated to a Victorian Seaside Holiday, courtesy of The Hold.

Among the many virtual tours available via the Hold’s website ( is this one, all about Lowestoft in its heyday as a popular seaside resort.

From the comfort of their armchairs, rather than deckchairs, residents were given a guided tour by Dean who, as a Carlton Colville boy himself, was able to add more than just a little local colour.
