We’re situated right next to a gorgeous coastline and it would be a shame not to venture there when the sun is beaming down. When it comes to beach attire in Sunderland I think we can leave the Baywatch bikini at home, however, shorts and t-shirts are definitely a must! It’s all about the tropical vibes this season – think pineapples, flamingos and prints with plenty of colour and you’ve nailed it. Remember to take a beach towel with you too (or a super-cool poncho if you have kids), it’s an essential whether you’re going for a paddle in the sea or not. Plus, I’d recommend taking a hoodie. The light may last but sometimes the heat doesn’t! Remember those rainy days I was talking about? Don’t fret. If it’s pouring down and you still want all the fun of the seaside, the Bridges has its very own beach inside the centre, which is open until September 3rd.
