10 of the best beach and coast activities around the UK

10 of the best beach and coast activities around the UK The beach isn’t only for sunbathing. If you’d rather give coasteering, surfing, climbing or even foraging a go, here’s how and whereThe Jurassic Coast looks thrillingly different when viewed from a rock face on the Isle of Portland. Connected to the mainland via Chesil Beach, this limestone peninsula is laced with climbing routes, from beginner-friendly to challenging. The old railway cuttings on the east coast feature climbs for all levels, while Blacknor cliff on the west has easier routes for those new to the activity. Participants learn key skills, including how to belay safely, from Rob Kennard, who has decades of teaching experience and good knowledge of the local geology.• Half-day taster session from £22pp (for a group of seven or eight; £27pp for four; £75 for one), portland-climbing.co.uk Continue reading...

Sanctuary in the city: how urban parks saved our summer

Sanctuary in the city: how urban parks saved our summer Created by the Victorians as Britain industrialised, city parks and green spaces have ‘become living rooms’ during the pandemicAs lockdown eased, green spaces nationwide began to throng with crowds, drinking, picnicking and ordering pizza to be delivered to specific park benches.

But then there was an unexpected upside. “People started to do their own thing, cleaning up with bin bags and litter- pickers bought off eBay,” says Paul Rabbitts, head of parks at Watford borough council. Despair at the deluge of litter had galvanised people to get out and do their bit, sometimes bagging up rubbish before overwhelmed local authorities managed to get to it. “There is a sense of ownership,” says Rabbitts. “Having rediscovered parks, people are fearful of losing or spoiling them.”Across Britain, parks have offered millions of people respite from the coronavirus crisis – a breathing space amid infection anxieties, crowded flats, home-schooling and job insecurities. With other venues closed, people turned to the nation’s 27,000 urban green spaces, from manicured landscapes to patchy neighbourhood parks and playing fields. Continue reading...

10 of the UK Food writers and chefs pick their favourite chippies, pop-ups and cafes, all chosen for their creative use ofseafoodPort Isaac has a medieval harbour, which once handled coal and pottery.

They do the best crab sandwich (£9.75) in the world!”• freshfromthesea.co.uk Continue reading...

Out to play: the best things to do around the UK this week

Out to play: the best things to do around the UK this week From open-air clubbing in north London to riding the dunes in the ‘South Wales Sahara’, here’s our pick of attractions and eventsLast week’s selection – all still going onTottenham was, pre-lockdown, one of London’s up-and-coming nightlife hubs, led by warehouse-with-a-conscience nightclub the Cause. The club remains closed, but its team has transformed several industrial spaces next door into Costa del Tottenham, an open-air venue with a festival spirit. It’s a large all-weather space, open daytimes and evenings, with DJs, street food and lots of outdoor seating. The Southside area has palm trees, murals and big beats on the Terrace; a few steps down the road, Northside has trestle tables inside and a tropical disco-style stage hosting quiz nights and craft beer bottomless brunches. Group tickets must be booked in advance (£10pp), and inside it’s table service via an app. A rota of street food traders ranges from Neapolitan pizza and spicy Indian kati rolls to vegan “tofish” tacos and fried jerk cauliflower in ginger beer batter with slaw.• costadeltottenham.co.uk Continue reading...
