Can you beat Netmums' description?!
"For a variety of indoor and outdoor fun, most of which is free, you can't beat Portobello Promenade. On sunny days the kids can play on the beach, the toddlers park or the swing park, all within a few minutes walk of each other along the prom. For eats and treats the traditional fish-and-chips or ice-cream are available, or there are a number of child-friendly cafes, pubs and hotels along the prom - including the 'Espy' with its gigantic portions of fresh tasty fare.
There's a host of sporting fun along the Prom too including the new sailing school. And if the weather's not so good you can take your swimming indoors at the Swim Centre, bowl at the bowling centre or simply spend some loose change having fun in the seaside arcades."
Well it doesn't mention the volleyball (it's always pleasant to watch other people taking exercise!), right next to the excellent Little Green Van coffee stall.
Almost any day of the year, you can meet people of all shapes, sizes, and backgrounds enjoying the fresh air and sea breezes.
"The Centre programme is Youth Work focused with a comprehensive range of activities taking place for young people. It has links with the Boys Club Movement with an emphasis on sport. It is also home to various community groups addressing local issues and needs."
