Coastal towns and cities dominate the cheapest places to stay, with traditional seaside locations Great Yarmouth, Scarborough and Torquay featuring in the top 10.

Eleanor Kutylowski, from Trivago’s UK Communications team, said: “With many people set to enjoy holidays within the UK this year, it’s important to know where Brits can find the best value at home.

“Our data shows that several British beaches offer low-cost accommodation – welcome news for anyone looking to take a staycation by the sea in 2017. In addition, those looking to make city trips this year can save money by swapping London, Bath or Oxford in favour of Sheffield, Nottingham or Newcastle.”
