Summery

Bridlington seaside resort needs a new look to attract new customers. They should do this to attract a new and younger audience. Bridlington seaside resort is mainly focused on the elderly through to fact that there are no special entertainment in near area for the younger customers. The younger customers, families with children, need to travel to other towns for entertainment. Also is the resort old fashioned with the accommodation. In this peer review I go examine what good improvements are to invest in the resort.

The Bridlington seaside resort can use a facelift. The accommodations are old fashioned and very expensive to rent. On the resort the entertainment is mainly focused on elderly people, with a bingo hall, a bowling green and a theatre.

To attract younger customers the resort should make more space for entertainment. A solution could be to build an amusement hall with games. The seaside resort could choose to be a year-round entertainment park, with concerts for different age groups. Also the Bridlington seaside resort should use social media. Because of the user population, in the United Kingdom, of social media is this a new way of promotion for the resort.

If the Bridlington seaside resort adapt to the new standards of the younger generation, they could be a great profitable resort.
