Rockpooling at Saltdean

The summer holidays have been over for just over a week and I’m already missing all the fun days out with the little ones. One of my favourites things we did this summer was a little trip to Saltdean near Brighton for a couple of hours exploring the rock pools. I love doing outdoor things with the kids and the rubbish weather didn’t stop us!

I’d really recommend this as a family day out. All you need is a bucket and net and some waterproof show and your good to go. Saltdean is just over an hour from London too. I thought I’d share a few pictures I took while we there…

If you have a spare afternoon before the weather gets too cold, I’d definitely recommend going rock pooling. Be sure to check the tide times first as they vary from day-to-day. You need to go at low tide.

    That is such a beautiful corner of the world. The vibrancy of the green struck me instantly, but really, everything about it looks magical.
