Life's a beach this summer at Bluewater.
The shopping centre near Dartford is bringing The Beach to its shores, and it promises to be bigger and better than last year's first offering.
Soak up the sun and relax on the sand of the urban beach, or enjoy the numerous rides and attractions set to keep everyone entertained.
Fairground rides will cater for families, children and adults, with some old favourites, as well as some exciting, new rides.
There will also be a number of shows and activities during July and August, including Punch and Judy, pirate treasure hunts, bubble making and a puppet show, circus workshops and a teddy bear's picnic.
The beach opens to visitors for the first time on Saturday, July 14 and stays open throughout the summer holidays, closing on Sunday, September 3.
Entry is £3 per person, with rides and attractions costing extra. It will be open every day, from 11am to 9pm.
You can find The Beach outside The Village, near Zizzi and Pizza Express, on the site of what would normally be the car park.
