Popped into Leigh as a nice sunny Saturday afternoon. Quite nice shops for a browse but parking and traffic tricky. Moved car to go for lunch at Peter boat. Big mistake. Eventually got parked but pub was heaving. If it's a lovely day best to try and use train and book a table!

At only 43 minutes from London by train, this is a perfect escape for a day out. Lovely village, the freshest seafood, great historical pubs and a beautiful coastline.

An interesting old fishing village. Cobbled road, cockle sheds, old pubs and restaurants. An interesting event going on most weekends in the summer, especially Old Leigh Festival. Great for all ages.

This little area is more estuary than seafront but is still a lovely place to visit. It has a small sandy beach area for small children to play and also a wide open Tarmac area for teens to congregate. It is of historical interest regarding fishing and local shipping. It is very attractive in the good weather, there is often... More
