Winter has come to an end, the days are getting longer, and that can only mean one thing: Summer is on its way! Put your winter clothes away in a cupboard and find your swimming things because the days are getting warmer and the hottest event of Summer 2017 is nearly upon us! That’s right, The Beach intu Lakeside is back and it promises to be better than ever before.
Walks in the snow, a trip to the ice skating rink and snuggling up indoors with a nice, warm cup of cocoa are just some of the reasons we love winter. When the wind is howling outside and you are cozy on the sofa, there is a nice feeling of contentment. But when summer arrives, we forget about all that, because we want to be out and about, making the most of the glorious, if short British summer time, working on our sun tans, socialising with friends and topping up on vitamin D.
We all love and look forward to a summer trip to the seaside. Whether we are playing in the sand with a bucket and spade, throwing a ball around in the water, building sandcastles and forts or writing messages in the sand, there is so much fun to be had at the seaside. But for many people, especially those that live far away from the coast, that magical trip to the seaside can be very difficult to organise. With children to worry about, it is even harder, so at The Beach intu Lakeside, we are bringing the beach to you!
Just by the intu Lakeside Shopping Centre on West Thurrock Way in Grays, Essex, The Beach Lakeside is a recreation of the seaside right on your doorstep! We have swimming pools for swimming and paddling, mountains of sand to build sandcastles in, deckchairs to relax in and a whole host of other rides for you to try. From roller coasters for the adrenaline lovers to child-friendly rides for the little ones, there is something for everyone! As well as all this, there is live entertainment, free events on site and loads of food and drink on sale. This is a summer celebration that you won’t want to miss!
So now you can start getting excited for the summer and plan your visit to us. We are open from 12pm until 9pm so whether you want to settle in for a whole day with us or just pop in for a quick dip in the pool, or ride on a roller coaster, we would love to see you down here! The countdown has begun!
