The Beach At Brent Cross Reopens

Beach at Brent Cross

If you live in London, the seaside can seem a very long way away. Brent Cross has a solution, in the shape of its annual artificial beach.

The attraction features (almost) all the joys of the seaside. Let the kids loose on fairground rides, splash pools, a beach, amusements and games, Punch and Judy shows, and all the ice cream and candy floss you’ll allow them.

The Beach has been rethought from top to bottom to ensure it complies with Covid-19 safety guidelines. These included reduced visitor numbers, strict social distancing rules, track & trace records, and prebooked tickets only. 

The attraction is handily located in Brent Cross right next to the famous shopping centre. You won’t get to paddle in the actual sea, but the roar of the North Circular can sound a little like breaking waves, if you use your imagination ;-)

If you want to make the effort and travel out to the real thing, then check out our guide to 7 beaches within striking distance of London.

The Beach at Brent Cross runs until 27 September. Entrance is just £3 (adults or children), but tokens must be bought for individual attractions.



At Kidadl we pride ourselves on offering families original ideas to make the most of time spent together at home or out and about, wherever you are in the world. We strive to recommend the very best things, that are suggested by our community and are things we would do ourselves - our aim is to be the trusted friend to parents. 

We try our very best, but cannot guarantee perfection. We will always aim to give you accurate information at the date of publication - however, information does change, so it's important you do your own research, double-check and make the decision that is right for your family.  

Kidadl provides inspiration for everything from family days out to online classes, arts, crafts and science experiments. We recognise that not all activities and ideas are appropriate and suitable for all children and families or in all circumstances. Our recommended activities are based on age but these are a guide. We recommend that these ideas are used as inspiration, that ideas are undertaken with appropriate adult supervision, and that each adult uses their own discretion and knowledge of their children to consider the safety and suitability.

Kidadl cannot accept liability for the execution of these ideas, and parental supervision is advised at all times, as safety is paramount. Anyone using the information provided by Kidadl does so at their own risk and we can not accept liability if things go wrong.
