The Beach intu Lakeside came out of a desire to create a new and exciting kind of day out that both parents and children would love. A visit to the seaside is a great family day out, but it can be rather inaccessible for people who live far from the sea. Just the journey can be enough to drive you up the wall, but when you throw in parking and packing all the little things you might need, it can become a nightmare. Swimming costumes, sun cream, towels, hats, buckets, spades, change of clothes, food, drink, the list just goes on and on.

The Beach by the intu Lakeside Shopping Centre on West Thurrock Way in Grays, Essex, was setup to reduce the number of items on that list and to make it easier for families to enjoy a seaside experience. The Beach is an inland seaside area, combined with an amusement park, with everything you could expect to see by the sea, except perhaps for the rough waves in the water. The sand, sun and water help to recreate that beach feeling and cooling refreshments, exciting rides and various other forms of entertainment help visitors to enjoy themselves once they arrive.

The huge benefit of The Beach intu Lakeside is that it is so conveniently located. The idea behind this is that families can combine a visit to the ‘seaside’ with a trip to the shopping centre, giving parents the chance to do the shopping and pick up anything they might need, while the kids have an amazing time that they’ll never forget! One of our goals at The Beach intu Lakeside is to make your day with us as stress-free as possible, so we do everything we can to ensure that you enjoy your experience with us.

Above all, we know and appreciate that affordable days out can be difficult to come by, but with entry at just £3 per person, a visit to The Beach is very reasonably-priced, even if you have several excitable little ones to entertain. Our range of different rides and roller coasters add loads of variety to the day that not even the biggest Urban Beach in the country can match!


The Beach intu Lakeside is a unique idea that combines the seaside with a Urban Beach and the convenience of being able to do your shopping at the same time. We look forward to spending the day with you and hope that you enjoy the British summer weather. The Beach intu Lakeside is not far from London and is one of the best things to do in Essex this summer!
