Theonly downside to living in London is that beaches aren’t close by, so if we can’t make it to the beach, then the beach has to come to us. This summer Brent Cross shopping centre are doing just that and constructing London’s BIGGEST EVER urban beach. Running from 10th July to 2nd Sept, you will be able to relive your childhood and experience things such as Punch and Judy shows, fair ground rides and seaside games. There will also be a log flume, a whopping 60ft rollercoaster and one of the original helter skelters.
The food is also typically seaside themed, serving fish and chips and ice cream vans on the sand, and when we say sand we mean over 250,000 tonnes of sand, which will have taken around 9,480 hours to construct. As the beach is meant to be a relaxing place, you can put your feet up in one of the larger than life deck chairs whilst having a tipple from the tiki style pimms bar or even splash your toes in the paddling area.
So this summer, why not grab your bucket and spade and head to the seaside.
Entry £3 per person
