Last year, researchers in Wellington, New Zealand looked into a psychological advantages of being by a sea.

The investigate found that ‘increased prominence of nature’ in an urbanised area was related to revoke psychological distress.

The researchers also detected that ‘visible blue space’ in a coastal city of Wellington was related to revoke highlight levels, even some-more so than immature spaces.

The investigate adds that offer investigate is needed to endorse ‘whether increasing prominence of blue space could foster mental contentment and revoke trouble in other cities,’ though there’s no denying that a day during a beach can be strenuously healing.

So we’ve listed a best strand towns in distinguished stretch of London where we can run divided to this Bank Holiday weekend.

Southend-on-sea, Essex

Southend gets a bad rep, though it’s an ideal end either you’re with friends or family. Being a ancestral home of Jamie Oliver, Southend has a clever foodie reputation, and a male himself owns a cafeteria on a coast.

People group here to see a pier, that is a longest in a world. It was beautifully easy in 2009 after it was all but destroyed by a glow in 2005. Plus, we can float a drum coaster at Peter Pan’s Adventure Island if you’re looking for a fun day out for a whole family.


Frinton-on-sea, Essex

Slightly north of Southend is Frinton, that is a small reduction bustling and a small cleaner than Essex’s better-known strand towns. There are no entertainment arcades, no post and no ice-cream vans, though that’s all partial of a charm.

According to a website, a Frinton Residents’ Association promotes an Olde Worlde ideal of Frinton-on-Sea as ‘a place where everybody can suffer an atmosphere of assent and relaxation, take advantage of a healthy beauty of swathes of open grassland and a pleasing sandy beach heading down to a sea though a distractions of entertainment parks that can be found elsewhere.’

That said, there is giveaway parking all along a dance so we can strech a pacific beach with ease.


Hastings, East Sussex

Famous for a Battle of Hastings, this strand city is ripping with history. It takes usually underneath an hour and a half to strech from London, creation it a available retreat.


Brighton, East Sussex

It’s warranted a nickname ‘London by a sea’ for a reason. From a arcade attractions on a post to a charming nightlife and magnanimous locals, Brighton is hugely renouned with tourists from a UK and beyond.

Even better, we can be on a beach within an hour from London Bridge Station.


Whitsable, Kent

Love a charming emporium fronts in #Whitstable. Wandered past this oyster bar after a cold wander along a pebble beach. #chasing_facades

Whistable is a foodie Mecca, generally if we like oysters. It is also famous for samphire, that is a ideal side plate to offer with freshly-caught fish.


West Wittering, West Sussex

Further west is West Wittering, that is home to gorgeous, unspoilt, sandy beaches. West Wittering is so picturesque, a beach has won awards for a good looks.


Aldeburgh, Suffolk

Aldeburgh competence be a classiest strand city on a list. The internal fish and chip emporium is so conservatively British it doesn’t even offer chips and gravy, though a food is so good you’ll frequency notice.

Sailing is large in Suffolk, and we can learn how during a internal yacht club, though land-lovers can also take a wander on a primitive shingle beach.


Dungeness Beach, Kent

Dungeness is usually over an hour from London, though it looks worlds away. Dungeness is also home to what is technically Britain’s usually desert.

The landscape is flat, dull and somewhat surreal, though it’s unequivocally beautiful.


Bournemouth, Dorset

It might be in a West country, though it usually takes around dual hours to get to Bournemouth from London.

Bournemouth is a ancestral review that rose to celebrity in a Victorian era, though a city has changed with a times. The post here is still a centrepiece, but the seafront also boasts an IMAX cinema, oceanarium, and even an synthetic embankment for surfers.


Sunny Sands, Kent

With a name like Sunny Sands, you’d design large things from this beach in Folkestone.

Fortunately, it delivers. Sunny Sands is one of a closest sandy beaches to London, as it takes usually 50 mins to strech Folkestone from St Pancras.

If we can’t make it this weekend, afterwards revisit in June. The beach is home to Folkestone’s annual sandcastle competition, that unequivocally is a steer to behold.
