Whatever the weather

Plan a seaside break whatever the weather

From the tip of its gnarled Cornish toe to the top of its tousled Northumbrian head, there are so many things to do at the seaside. Life-long mementoes are found combing the beach for buried treasure or scouring boutique shops for local art. Dip into rock pools for crabs then dig into cockles freshly hauled from the sea. A seal-searching boat trip or a seaside sculpture trail is the chance to soak up the rays. Jet-ski or sightsee. Deserted bay or gourmet. All the fun of the fair or all the quiet you could ask for. The seaside you choose is up to you, not the weather.
