Urban beaches in London

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside right here in the city with London's very own urban beaches – sunshine not guaranteed

Landlocked Londoners, you too shall feel the sand between your toes. Thanks to a sweet selection of urban beaches that are popping up across the capital for the summer, the seaside is just a tube ride away. Sink into a deck chair, grab a Piña Colada and sunbathe by the Thames. Check out these lovely London lidos and outdoor pools if you need to cool down afterward. And if you really wanna feel a coastal breeze through your locks, here are some actual beaches near London you can head along to.
