Maybe you're a couple in search of a romantic moment to share? Whatever the occasion, Parkdean Resorts has a selection of places to stay - and they're situated close to some of the top spots. Get set for the best sunset locations with our top 4 picks!
The Humber Bridge
This iconic Humber Bridge is a popular place to watch the sunset. But before you reach the end of your day, Hull has a range of attractions on offer for all ages and interests.
There are plenty of fun things to do so you can fill your day with activities. East Park and The Deep Aquarium are fantastic attractions filled with wildlife to keep the kids happy. There are also a number of museums, bars and restaurants – and, of course, the marina.
So if you're looking forward to taking a trip to the city, the sunset on the Humber Bridge is the ideal way to end your day. There’s a walkway so you can stroll one of the world's longest span suspension bridges while the daylight fades. Alternatively, you’ll find a number of walking routes with some great viewing spots – offering the perfect place to watch the sun go down before you drive back to Withernsea Sands or Sunnydale Holiday Park.

Just over an hour away from our Ty Mawr Holiday Park, the hills of Wales await. Climbers and family walkers alike can take in the sunset surrounded by the natural beauty of Snowdonia National Park.
If you want to take a wilderness walk and follow a trail through the great outdoors, this is the place for you! With more than 100 lakes, anglers and nature lovers alike find Snowdonia the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of city life.
Not too keen on all that exertion? You can ride the Snowdon Mountain Railway to the summit and drink in the fading rays from the top of Wales' highest mountain.
And if you're not too tired out from all the action or want to relax after your mountain walk, Ty Mawr Holiday Park’s heated pool awaits to relax those well-worked muscles. Or if you need to refuel, The Boathouse Bar and Restaurant are ready to serve up something tasty for you and the family.
The White Cliffs of Dover
One of Britain's most iconic landmarks, The White Cliffs of Dover offer a fantastic spot to see the sun sink into the sea. You’ll also find plenty to explore and enjoy before the end of the day, including a wildlife walk that trails along the cliffs up to South Foreland Lighthouse.
If you fancy a dip in the sea - it's a stone's throw away. Or, if you're not wanting to stray off the park until later, the sauna, spa and swimming pool at nearby St Margaret’s Bay Holiday Park are all ready for you to enjoy.
Later, share simplicity at its finest with your family or loved one. Watch the sun drop slowly into the ocean beneath the 110m cliffs (that’s the length of our dry ski slope at Warmwell Holiday Park!) before returning to the comfort of your caravan at 'Marvellous St. Maggie's'.
Lizard Point and Land’s End
The other side of the country is home to another two fantastic locations for watching the sun go down, pirate style! Lizard Point and Land’s End. What’s more, with several holiday parks to choose from in Cornwall, you’re never too far away from the region’s stunning natural beauty – wherever you decide to stay.
Just five miles away from Lizard Point, you’ll find Lizard Point Holiday Park. It’s the perfect base for you to venture out from and seek that perfect sunset. But before and after, the pools, restaurants and park entertainment give you and the kids plenty to do during the day.
If amazing park facilities and spectacular sunsets wasn’t enough, you’ll also find a whole host of family friendly attractions on offer nearby. Get some inspiration for your next day out by browsing our local attractions listings for Cornwall.
