The Beach at Bluewater in Greenhithe, Kent, opens on Saturday, July 20

by Lauren Abbott

The Beach is back!

There's no need to go all the way to the coast from this weekend, when one of Kent's biggest shopping centres brings back its summertime attraction.

A sandy beach, water to take a dip in, fairground rides, games and all the traditional refreshments will be on offer in a specially constructed seaside replacement at The Village car park.

But for those wishing to avoid the thrills and spills of the fairground, a packed programme of entertainment is also being included for families.

There will be Punch and Judy shows, pirate treasure hunts, a teddy bears picnic and circus and bubble workshops to get everyone into the holiday spirit.
