Introducing the Coastal Pass

Posted by Richard Hammond at 07:11 on Tuesday 28 February 2017

New online booking tool opens up England’s east coast from Yorkshire to Essex.

The Coastal Pass is a new online booking tool that combines cutting edge interactive video technology with an innovative application that enables visitors to plan and build their own itineraries, creating bespoke short breaks and holidays along the East Coast of England.

The Pass includes a series of innovative interactive videos that bring to life the beauty of the east coast of England, from the ports of Hull to Harwich. Uniquely, they draw attention to stretches of coastline little explored by international and domestic visitors.

By clicking on the interactive experiences in the videos, users can then create their own unique itineraries – selecting places to eat, stay, and visit all at the click of a button - focussing on areas of interest, whether nature, culture, history or sports and build in activities.

The Coastal Pass features new film extending from the port of Hull through to Harwich, including treasures like Flamborough Head and the Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre, spreading across Norfolk’s 90 miles of expansive coastline, from The Broads National Park to Great Yarmouth and Cromer to the sweeping stretches of the Suffolk and Essex coast.

Watch the interactive video, then select an experience and add it to your itinerary on the Coastal Pass and share with your friends.

The Coastal Pass has been created by the National Coastal Tourism Academy (NCTA), which works to improve the visitor experience on the coast and support coastal businesses. For information, see: Coastal Pass
