Season: autumn

Allhallows, on the Thames estuary, is probably the nearest conventional beach to London.  Located on the Hoo Peninsula, there’s a sailing club at the western end, but mostly the beach is backed by a holiday camp, a welcome escape to the seaside for Londoners.  There are quieter, more secluded beaches within walking distance, such as Yantlet, to the east.  Allhallows is a sandy beach and there’s a cafe to hand, plus a nearby pub.  This is a fine location to stretch your legs.
