Britain’s best beach for an autumn staycation named – full list

It’s officially autumn but that doesn’t mean it’s not time for a staycation at the British seaside. Many of the UK’s beaches are just as beautiful during autumn.

The travel expert team at ferry operator DFDS have found the UK’s best beaches for autumn, looking at the average temperatures and number of rainy days.

Better still, all the beaches are completely dog-friendly so furry friends are more than welcome to join for an autumn stroll.

Topping the list and a highlight of England’s Jurassic Coast was Durdle Door, which has just 11 rainy days in autumn on average.

‘Anouska R’ wrote: “Beautiful unspoilt site that has managed to receive lots of visitors but not become commercialised. Well worth a visit if you’re in Dorset.”

‘Cliveyboy224’ said: “What a beautiful place. Take the trip to Lulworth Cove too, it’s only just over a mile with fantastic views.”

Tourists can walk between the two gorgeous beaches or it’s just a short drive to Lulworth Cove from Durdle Door.

The steps down to the beach at Durdle Door are steep and the path can be slippery so make sure to take care. Tourists should never go off the marked path as it could be very dangerous.

Most of the other winning beaches were in Cornwall with Fistral Beach taking second place. However, Crosby Beach, a top spot in Merseyside also made the top three.

If the beach isn’t hitting the spot, why not check out Britain’s most walkable city or its most cultural?
