The Great British Seaside exhibition

39 days
left to enter

The British love affair with the seaside is encapsulated in this unique exhibition at the National Maritime Museum with fascinating photography from the 1960s to present day.

We are giving away 200 pairs of tickets to Possibilities members to visit the impressive National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, London to view the Great British Seaside exhibition.

As the iconic song goes, 'we do like to be beside the seaside', and the Great British Seaside: photography from the 1960s to the present – celebrates just that. Featuring more than 100 photographs by four of Britain’s best known photographers: Tony Ray-Jones, David Hurn, Martin Parr and Simon Roberts – this major exhibition explores our changing relationship with the seaside over the last six decades.

The exhibition holds up a critical but affectionate mirror to a much-loved, quintessentially British experience. It shines a light on familiar beach culture and behaviour, from overheating sun-worshippers to weather-beaten picnickers and amorous couples in the dunes. Don’t miss this one-off opportunity.
