Even in its heyday the seafront at Seaton was never one of the most attractive, and time has not been kind. Apart from the western end, most of the Esplanade is a desert of holiday flats. It is only at the ends, around the pretty Fore Street/Cross Street area and the equally attractive Axmouth Harbour, that you can see why it was once a popular seaside resort.
The rest of the town seems to have found a role for itself, and is the sort of place you could easily fall in love with. In fact, I think I may have already done so.
