Thank God we are once again allowed to take nice little breaks around the UK. Boy-oh-boy have we missed sand, sea, seagulls and small towns full of vintage shops and chain restaurants. Zizzi, we're running to you baby!
If you too are feeling the call of the British seaside, you'll be pleased to know that London is within two hours of some of the best beaches in the UK, from the wilds of Camber Sands to the eerie beauty of bleak Dungeness.
We've rounded up the best patches of yellow and blue here but you can also find more amazing places that are within easy reach of London elsewhere on this, the infamous Time Out website, from coastal walking routes in areas of outstanding natural beauty to good old fashioned seaside towns.
