"Oh I do like to be beside the seaside!"


Josie Watson

Join Blue Badge tourist guide Josie on a walk to discover tales of sandcastles and deckchairs on the beach, boat rides, thrills on the pier, fish and chip suppers and variety shows in the evening. And to round off your walk why not stop for fish and chips and a cup of tea on the promenade.

The walk lasts 1.5 hours and is on paved surfaces. Please dress to suit the weather. Or even walk in your favourite retro seaside holiday costumes. Positively encouraged! Go on, we dare you!
