The Best Beaches in Britain

Summer is knocking on the door and if you want to make the most out of it, you should plan your vocation properly. There is no better day to spend a warm summer day than at the beach, relaxing from the stress or strain that you have been subjected too at the workplace in the past several months, right? Many people go to the beach after finishing their home removals too, if the time of the year is right, because it really works. So let’s take a look at some of the best beaches in Britain this summer.

  • Bamburgh-CastleWe will naturally start off with the Bamburgh Beach. It is located close to the village of Belford and can be easily accessed through the A1 road. The shoreline is long and clean, the water is nice. However, many people come to Bamburgh for the beach and stay for the view. The scenery here is dominated by the large Bamburgh Castle overlooking the beach on one of the cliffs above, adding just the necessary amount of drama to make you feel like you have left the boring tracks of your everyday life.
  • Camber Sands beach in East Sussex is another great option, especially if you live in London or the counties surrounding the capital, because there are good connections via bus, train and car. The most distinct feature at Camber Sands is the richness of dunes around here, which are some of the biggest that you can see on the shores of England.
  • Cley-next-the-Sea is another great suggestion. You can take a train from London to Sheringham, and take a taxi from there to the beach – the ride is some 15 minutes. There are a number of hotels in the area where you can stay- either at Sheringham, or in the beautiful hotel next to the beach – the Cley Windmill. The beach itself is 3 miles long and if you are lucky, you can see seals here.
  • Littlehampton is one of the quietest beaches on the South Shore. The train ride from London to there is just over an hour and a half. You can enjoy peace and true escape from the stress and hassle of the city while you enjoy your day here. There are a number of cafes and restaurants in the area, where some of the best fish and chips to be tasted in Britain are made – seriously, among other things Littlehampton is quickly becoming something like a haven for food aficionados.
  • If you truly want to get away, go to Priory Beach on the Isle of Wright. You can get a ferry from Portsmouth Harbor after you have arrived from London, and then a day spent at one of the classic English beaches. After you are tired of tanning and swimming, you can always go to the oyster bar near the Priory Hotel and enjoy the view with a cold cocktail in hand. We guarantee that it is truly a magnificent experience.
