UK Coast in the Winter

Our UK beaches are stunning and dramatic places to visit in winter.

The UK coast is not just about summer holidays, with your wind break, bucket and spades packed away the winter is not a time to ignore the coast as it provides some excellent and dramatic backdrops for walks. The British coast has miles and miles of beaches and in the winter they tend to be empty and most allow you take your dogs.

Nothing beats walking along flat sandy beaches on dry winter days when the tide is out. Often the winter storms bring some interesting washed-up shells, wood and sticks to the high tide line, perfect time for scavenging and keeping the beachcombing kids happy for hours. Why not check out our top 10 UK Fossil beaches.

Just remember before you go, check the tide times as you need enough time for the whole walk and that essential cafe stop off.

Wrap up warm and explore our great UK coastline!
