- Dunster Watermill is a fully restored working 18th Century watermill built on a site mentioned in the Domesday Survey of 1086. The mill is set besides the River Avill and managed by the National Trust and you have the Watermill tea-room just 50 yards from the watermill and serves some good seasonal food.
- Brightlingsea beach is a small semicircular beach and quiet family resort that has a gently shelving sand and shingle beach. Located where the River Colne flows into the sea. Activities include windsurfing, canoeing, jet skis, crazy golf and bowls. Facilities include car park, beach huts.
- Flint Castle dominates the harbour on the estuary and was built in 1277 by Edward I. It’s known for its solitary round tower which is isolated from the rest of the inner ward. Over 3000 men helped build the castle and similar buildings can be found at Rhuddlan. Work was stopped here in 1286 so the castle never reached it’s full height. It was built to receive supplies from the sea or Dee estuary but now it is far from the river and stands in ruin. Fragments of the Outer Gate towers stand as does the original curtain on the South. The North East tower is the most preserved part of this castle and was used as a dwelling. What makes Flint unusual is that it is the only Edwardian castle without a gatehouse. Car park available at the end of Castle Dyke Street by the lifeboat station. Image of Flint castle by Lesbardd
- The Westgate is a medieval gatehouse in Canterbury. A 60ft high western gate of the city wall is the largest surviving city gate in England.

Grade I listed building houses the hundred-year-old West Gate Towers Museum, access to the museum and roof is via spiral staircases only.
- Worthing beach is in West Sussex and is low-key compared to it’s East Sussex neighbour Brighton. Like all beaches on the West Sussex coast, it is a pebbly beach but when the tide is out its sand and many shallow pools. A great beach for family games, exploring and paddling. The Lido on the beachfront no longer offers a swim but has funfair rides, cafes, beach shops and an ice cream kiosk. Spend your time walking along the beach or promenade people watching and exploring the grassy areas just behind the beach or the town shops. At the western end towards Goring, you have a children’s playground on the beach itself. Facilities include car parks, street parking, cafe, lido, pier, beach huts, shelters, playground, promenade and full facilities you would expect of a seaside town centre. If you are interested in watersports then it probably best to head a little west to Goring Gap beach.
- Haldon Forest Park has something for abilities of cyclist with trails being graded from the more modest Family Cycle Trail and Adventure Cycle Trail, right up to red, black and double black runs for the more adrenaline mountain biking inclined.

- Another massive sweeping bay of sand, Grouville is best appreciated when the tide is in because otherwise you’ll have to walk a long way for a swim. The most popular place to stop is at the car park to the north of the golf course just before you drive into picturesque Gorey village. Here you will find a playground next to the beach entrance. 13th century Mont Orgueil overlooks Gorey harbour and is a popular attraction for visitors. Gorey harbour offers numerous eating options.
