February sees the release of the brand-new polymer £20 note. Following in suit of the previously released £5 and £10 notes which we have all been using for the last couple of years. For today’s post, I’ve actually teamed up with Morses Club who offer Cash Loans (Representative 466.37% APR) and who have created a really interesting infographic about the £20 note! So, to celebrate the release of the £20 note, I’ve decided to show how far twenty pounds actually can go on a day out.
Armed with twenty pounds (sadly not one of the new ones, yet), Stefan and I decided to spend the afternoon at the seaside. Even in the winter months, you are still spoilt for choice of things to do at Scarborough seafront. However, chilling on the beach and taking a dip in the sea wasn’t on that list. I’m actually surprised how far the £20 stretched with our first port of call playing a game of bowling in the arcades. For £4.95 each, I thought it was a great price and it was all fun and games until I lost disastrously.
For a day out at the seaside, you can’t not go to the Fish and Chip shop! We went to The Famous Fish Pan which is a local business which I’ve been eating at since I was little. For two portions of Chips and Sausage, it came in at under £5! We would’ve got Fish and Chips but I was saving room for the next stop which was visiting The Harbour Bar…
If you are visiting Scarborough, The Harbour Bar is a must-visit! This retro-styled ice cream parlour is just amazing and another favourite of mine. We sat at the counter and decided to order one of the Traffic Light Sundaes. Harbour Bar ice cream really is the best but it’s even better served with jelly and jelly babies! Visiting the Harbour Bar is a wonderful treat especially if you are purchasing one of their show-stopping creations!
We did have a little play in the arcades which you could really spend all day playing on all the games and 2p machines. If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen me on my stories in a glass box in a krypton style game where you had to catch coloured balls. Our afternoon was certainly fun-filled and we didn’t go over the £20 budget! You can find out more information on the history of the £20 note in the infographic below. I think it’s amazing how money has evolved now, and the new polymer note will be harder to forge and last way longer. It would even survive going in the washing machine!
Where would you go on a day out for £20? Did you know about the new £20 note?
