Win a copy of London on Sea by Sarah Guy

London on Sea by Sarah GuyThis prize draw is now closed.

Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside! Head for the fresh seafood of the Kent coast and leave the eels of the East End behind, get the wind in your hair and sand between your toes at the Witterings as a change from Green Park’s grass.

Written by former Time Out editor Sarah Guy, London on Sea offers 50 fun days out* on the coast, enticing you to head for the best beaches within close proximity of London. There’s nothing quite like it, especially the gently old-fashioned air that clings to some of our lesser-known seaside spots. Sarah also gives insights into great walks in each area, places for the perfect panorama, our wonderous whacky buildings and local specialities that are distinct in each place.

Refresh, rejuvenate and restore with sea air, a bracing breeze and a chilly dip in the briny. We all have childhood memories of ginger beer, windbreaks and soggy sandwiches. Along with those towels that had elasticated necklines for changing under. Very character building no doubt!
