Barnoldswick Beach
Barnoldswick Beach
Type: Play area
Submitted by:David Whipp
Item Location: Barnoldswick Beach, Town Square, Barnoldswick BB18 5AA


Although Barnoldswick couldn't be any further from the sea, in August the tides bring tons of sand right into the heart of the town and Barnoldswick's square is transformed into Britain's best inland beach.

The summer holiday attraction, with a covered beach area and beach activities, has had tens of thousands of visits from families from far and wide. For many, visiting Barnoldswick Beach is the first of many visits to the town.

The Beach is organised by Barnoldswick Town Council and staffed entirely by volunteers. As well as the sand itself, there are Donkey Days with donkeys giving rides to the little ones, and there's a surf simulator for beach goers young and old.

Treasure Trails take families around Barnoldswick's town centre during Barnoldswick Beach with Barlick Gold to be found at the end of the trail.

A crafty corner gives kids the chance to be creative, with lots of hands on activity.

All the activities are FREE! (Visitors are invited to make a donation to charity - in 2014, the two charities being collected for are the North West and Yorkshire Air Ambulances.)

Whatever your age, Barnoldswick Beach is an event to explore, full of free, family friendly fun!
