You won’t find anything quite like this anywhere for miles around. In fact, unless you go to the coast, you won’t see a place like this full stop! There is plenty of sand to be moulded into sandcastles and forts, and loads of room to relax in a deckchair with a drink in hand. It is a great place to enjoy the hot weather!

3. The Rides

The seaside has the sand and sea, but no beach can match our wide range of Urban Beach rides, from roller coasters to giant swings. We have lots of new rides this year, as well as some of the old favourites. There are child-friendly rides and some faster ones for thrill seekers. Where else can you mix deckchairs with the log flume?

4. A Children’s Paradise

The Beach is designed with kids in mind. It is a summer celebration that children absolutely love, and not just because of the sand a pools. There is a whole load of great live entertainment, including performing dancers and free events. What’s more, you’ll find a wide variety of food and drink on sale too!

5. The Location

Located next to the intu Lakeside Shopping Centre on West Thurrock Way in Grays, you won’t find a more convenient spot for a beach festival in Essex, especially one that’s so close to London.
