A truly beautiful stretch of shingle and sand backed by a series of low cliffs, St Bees is an excellent place to go for a quiet day of contemplation.
There are a fascinating array of shells and stones to pick through here, many of them caused by the continual erosion of the cliff face. It also marks the start of Wainwright's Coast-to-Coast route, which stretches from here to Robin Hood's Bay, in North Yorkshire.
