Walthamstow-on Sea: Beach Vibes


Don’t fancy sitting in traffic for hours, or crammed into a train with no air-con?

Don’t worry Cheapos, a day at the beach is closer (and cheaper) than you think; at Big Penny Social you can get full classic British seaside resort vibes without leaving London.

Welcome to Walthamstow-on-Sea. You can bask in the sun, sit in a deckchair and twiddle your toes in the sand, sip on a cold beer or frozen cocktail, enjoy a classic 99 ice cream, or sit down with some fish and chips on the beach – all seagull-free and on your doorstep.

Tuesday-Thursday evenings are free, with Friday-Sunday sessions a paltry £2. There are also kid-friendly sessions and one-off events, see website for details.

For bookings for sessions that aren’t ticketed, there is a pre-authorisation payment of £2 per person. For free sessions, this won’t be charged unless you don’t turn up for your booking. For sessions that cost £2, this won’t be charged unless you don’t turn up for your booking, but they will take a £2 card payment for entry in person.

Organisers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
