Jump some waves at the beach this summer, just don't forget your towel

Discover the coast

We care for nearly 750 miles of coastline around England, Wales and Northern Ireland, so this August why not spend some precious holiday time discovering somewhere new? From the spectacular to the family-friendly, we can help you choose the perfect beach.

If you're after something adventurous we know some great surf beaches in Cornwall, if you're relaxing then enjoy the breathtaking sea views, or for a family day out try ticking off our top ten '50 things' beach activities.

Summer events

Join us at one of our events this summer. Plan a family day out around our 50 things events, book a ticket for some outdoor theatre or bring your pooch to one of our events for your dog.

50 things to do before you’re 11 ¾

Whatever the weather, August is a great time to get outdoors and closer to nature. We’re hoping to get 200,000 children playing outside this year as they complete their 50 things challenge. So instead of watching Usain Bolt on telly, get closer to the action and set up a snail race.

First World War

This August marks 100 years since the start of the First World War. To mark the occasion why not visit one of the houses involved in the war effort and imagine what life was like. There are commemorative events being held and we have war memorials up and down the country where you can pay tribute to those who lost their lives.
