1950s: A caravan holiday like no other

  • Genre: Mystery

What you need to know before your trail

The holidays have begun. In a seaside caravan resort, Isabel and her sister Meg build sandcastles with the children, navigate deckchair politics, explore the pier’s delights, gorge ice cream in the sun. But their half-sister Mildred has returned to a nearby coastal cottage where her husband – the mysterious Uncle Paul – was arrested for his first wife’s attempted murder: and family skeletons emerge. Now, on his release from prison, is he returning for revenge, seeking who betrayed him? Or are all three women letting their nerves get the better of them? Though who really is Meg’s new lover? And whose are those footsteps …?’

Travel Guide


The beach is said to be the same name of the town where it is – SouthCliffe. This is not a real place so there are a few options on the map. Basically, the two places in the UK where you would go for a typical holiday as a child are Blackpool and Great Yarmouth. There are many seaside resorts up and down the coastline that people travel to for a break.

The seaside holiday and staying in a caravan were very popular in the 1950s and long after. It is still enjoyed today!
