Take a nostalgic trip to The Great British Seaside at the National Maritime Museum.

Reflecting on seaside experiences over the last six decades, the exhibition features work from four of Britain’s most acclaimed photographers: Martin Parr, Tony Ray-Jones, David Hurn and Simon Roberts.

Alongside 20 new works by Martin Parr that explore "local beaches" including Clacton-on-Sea and Shoeburyness, the show portrays quintessential British seaside icons from deckchairs to fish and chips in playful ways.
