The town is popular for weekend and midweek family breaks, with the beaches and attractions incredibly busy during the summer. During the winter, it is still popular as a peaceful alternative to the hustle and bustle of cities like Leeds and Bradford. As a result of tourism the hospitality industry flourishes, with a plethora of hotels and eateries creating a significant amount of employment opportunities in the town. For those looking for a mix of part-time and occasional full-time work, the tourism and catering industries are ideal choices.
