Our five favourite UK seaside shops
Live Like This, Cowes
An Aladdin's cave of wooden toys, quirky babygros, jewellery and lots of 'don't-need, must-have' homewares.
Little Beach Boutique, Brighton
This is the spot for gorgeous personalised height charts and artwork to decorate kids' rooms, animal slippers and some rather lovely beach hut mugs and notebooks.
Dorset Gifts, Poole
Everything in this shop has a seaside theme. Snap up bags of sustainable shells and starfish for crafts, plus artwork and 'gone to the beach' signs.
There's all the seaside-inspired items you could want as well as soft toys, wooden boats, homewares, jewellery and accessories.
Justin Chocolatier, Whitby
A chocolate and fudge shop that's nautical miles away from the usual rock and candy floss places, with its seasonal flavours and luxury ingredients.
