Like decades of civilized Londoners, as the mercury rises to an uncomfortable heat, we join our Victorian role models in looking for an escape from the city, retreating to the seaside.

We passed the rest of the day blissfully wandering the shore, taking in the quaint fishermen’s’ cottages and cute vendors selling trinkets and local wares.
