London’s largest urban beach returns to the Royal Docks for the summer of 2016. The beach will be open for the public to enjoy from July 11 to August 31. The beach was first opened in 2012 and has provided a popular sun-trap beneath the Emirates cable car on the embankment of Royal Victoria Dock.

Local residents and visitors alike are invited to enjoy the free family-friendly activities or simply relax in a deckchair and feel the sand between their toes. As in previous years, swimming in the water is not allowed and the beach opening hours are 10am-8pm Monday to Sunday.
