Explore the Beaches
From rock climbing to surfing to simply laying out and enjoying the sand, the UK’s beaches are diverse and refreshing.

Barafundle Bay beach in Wales is one of the most breathtaking parts of the stunning Welch coastline. In East Sussex, check out Camber Sands beach hidden behind a mountain of golden dunes.

Walk around Hyde Park to take in some nature, or hit some golf balls at Alexandra Palace- it might not be the biggest golf course in London, but it certainly offers the best views. Head out to Battersea Park for great views of the Thames River, an art gallery and even a children’s zoo. Bring rollerblades to scoot around quickly on wheels!
