Re: my ideal vacation

Are there any beach in London?

Re: my ideal vacation

by cubsur

No beaches in London - London is 40 miles/64km from the sea!

Re: my ideal vacation

by Maurizioago

Maybe there are some spots by the Thames.

Re: my ideal vacation

by TheWanderingCamel

The Thames may be a lot cleaner than it has been for centuries but there's still nowhere along its length in London that you could begin to call a "clear water beach"! Apart from the quality of the water, the river offers of plenty of other hazards - upstream nearer Kew and Richmond it might be tolerable, but downstream through the centre and out towards the Docks and Greenwich it's both busy and dangerous with swirls, underwater tows and currents – and working boats.
Between Hammersmith and Kew you do see the odd swimmer (very odd - and most likely drunk) and you stand a good chance of getting knocked out by one of the many oarsmen who train on this section of the river.

The best you can hope for if swimming in the open air is what you're looking for is the check out one of the London "lidos" (open air swimming pools)on this website.

Where dis u read about beaches in London. Even i want to c it

Re: my ideal vacation

by IreneMcKay

In the unlikely event we ever get any sun, try swimming in the Serpentine, Hyde Park. It's not the sea though. If you really want the sea, do a day trip London to Brighton (around 50 miles)one direct train. You are on the sea and weather permitting can enjoy the beach.

by TheLongTone

There is a bit of beach visible down by Gabriels Wharf on the South bank but the only clear water is will be any you've taken with you and the scany sand is interspersed by calf-deep clarty silt. For a pleasnt paddle or even a swim, i'd recommend the aegean as the nearest likely spot.

where you will see a couple basking on a bit of beach by the 'clear waters' of the Thames in London.

Re: my ideal vacation

by happycats

theres frequently a beach in drey lane off brick lane. no clear water though, lots of drunk fashion students however if thats your thing.

Re: my ideal vacation

by Claire2010

I'm afraid there aren't any beaches in London, you'd have to travel down to the South Coast to places like Brighton or Bournemouth to get sea and sand. You can take a trip down to the river in London though; if you visit one of our lovely parks like Richmond Park, you can take a ride on the river. The weather's glorious at the moment so hopefully it'll continue throughout the summer!

Travel Tips for London

What to see?

by Durfun

The Millenium Wheel The views across River Thames...

How the new blends in with the old.. both holding their own, and attracting their own following.. eg St Pauls Cathedral, and Swiss Reinsurance 'gherkin' tower !

The tranquillity delivered by the gorgeous & ample River Thames.

Free lunch

by leigh767

Whoever said that there is no such thing as a free meal?

If you're in the Bloomsbury area between 12.30 to 1.30, try your luck with Hare Krishna vegetarian food. They set up stall jsut about every day and are popular with students and staff from the surrounding area (mainly University College London/ UCL). Queues are inevitable, but you usually won't have to wait for more than 10 mins fora good plate of steaming hot Indian-style vegetarian meal.

A good option when you are -really- running low on cash.

Address: Gower Street, in front of the UCL main entrance. Look for the brick-red Cruciform Building.

The London TelecomTower...

by BluBluBlu

The BT Tower is in Fitzrovia, just north of Oxford Street.

The British Telecom Communication Tower was the first purpose-built tower to transmit high frequency radio waves, and it relays broadcast, Internet and telephone information around the world.

It cost £2 million to construct, and is 189m (620ft) tall. When it was built it was the tallest building in London.

Despite the BT Tower being one of most recognisable buildings in London, it was classed, for some strange reason, as an 'official secret' until fairly recently, and taking photos of the BT/Post Office Tower was technically an offence under the Official Secrets Act! LOL!

Tower of London - The Queen's House

by kris-t

Queen's House has been home to the officer responsible for running the Tower of London, today the Resident Governor, and it is not open to the public. In the past, prisoners were often brought here for interrogation...

Summertime

by uglyscot

As soon as the sun shows itself, Londoners strip off and sunbathe, and families head for the parks. The most popular parks are Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, and St James's Park; Kew Gardens and Greenwich are also popular.
In Hyde Park deckchairs are set up, but in St James's Park people sit on the grass and have snacks or picnics. Most of the parks have a lake, pond or water feature which attracts ducks, geese and swans.
