#ukcside - the British seaside...

The seaside is an essential part of the British "cultural landscape"... Another great collaborative Twitter project response... Yesterday, I asked colleagues who follow me to provide some descriptions of the British Seaside... Words that appear larger were mentioned more frequently by the word cloud generator.
