The Best of British holiday is back!

Camping is enjoying resurgence as the credit crunch has prompted thousands of Brits to forsake foreign trips for low-budget outdoor holidays at home.

A recent survey has revealed that more people will brave the British weather and abandon their usual package holidays abroad for the traditional British seaside resorts. On the list of top five nostalgic destinations Skegness, Brighton and Weston-Super-Mare are all set to benefit in a rise in tourism during the 2009 economic downturn.

However, to enjoy camping you need to know what you are doing.
