COASTAL LANDSCAPES IN ENGLAND

Boats moored in the sheltered harbour at Seaton's Sluice in Northumberland, England

The images in this gallery reveal the great diversity of landscapes along the coast of England. Here you’ll discover deserted sandy beaches, secluded bays, and historic lighthouses that continue to play their vital role of warning mariners of the hidden dangers of the ocean.

The rugged rocks that line some sections of the shore have, over the centuries, claimed countless lives on dark and fearful nights when Mother Nature, in her most aggressive moods, conjured up violent storms that whipped the ocean’s waters into a frenzy and hurled ships into the deadly embrace of battalions of algae-cloaked boulders.

Today pleasure craft and fishing boats find refuge from any hint of wild weather in the picturesque harbours that are dotted along the English coast, and several sheltered harbours in Devon, Cornwall and Yorkshire, at towns and villages that are popular tourist destinations, are featured here.
