The Great British Seaside celebrates six decades of our love affair with the beach.

See iconic work from some of Britain’s most popular photographers, featuring Martin Parr, Tony Ray-Jones, David Hurn and Simon Roberts.

The exhibition will also feature 20 brand new works by Martin Parr, arguably Britain’s favourite photographer, focusing on the thriving and diverse resorts of London’s ‘local beaches’.

So, whatever the weather, take a trip to the seaside with us to revel in the quintessentially British experience of beach huts, umbrellas, sandcastles and fish & chips.
