More coast with the most

We like to think there’s more to seaside life than sandcastles. With England’s coastal towns packed with contemporary cool, there’s so much to do. We spend sun-drenched days browsing funky fashions or dipping into artists’ studios. In search of some action? Make like a surfer and catch the waves or try your hand (and nerve) at coasteering: one, two, three, JUMP! Worked up an appetite? With celebrity chefs taking up residence by the sea, fish and chips will never taste the same again. Now, where did we put that bucket and spade?
