Gorleston beach was ranked number eight in this year’s list, announced today (February 26) by the travel website.

The beach was the only one from Norfolk to feature in the top ten.

The announcement is more good news for a coastal attraction that later this year will feature in the Danny-Boyle movie ‘Yesterday’.

Scenes shot on the beach last summer had over 5,000 extras singing along to songs by The Beatles.
