The North is home to some of the country's most breathtaking beaches and views. You'll find traditional seaside destinations dotted along the North-East coast from Whitley Bay down to Skegness, while an awe-inspiring scene awaits you along the wild Northumberland coastline and vast stretch of sand at Bamburgh. The monumental sand dunes of Formby on the West coast of Lancashire might even give you a view of Blackpool tower on a clear day, while Blundell Sands near Crosby is also worth a visit to see Antony Gormley's sculptures of one hundred iron men staring out to sea.
