A stunning glimpse of some of Britain’s finest coastline, from the granite columns of the Giant’s Causeway on the Northern Irish coast and the rocky cliffs of Wales and South West England to the great open horizons of the East Anglian shore.

However, this is not just a celebration of Britain’s beauty, but an investigation into the preservation and maintenance of the UK’s coastline. The Trust owns a remarkable amount of coastline, looking after it not only as a landlord and at times a harbourmaster, but caring for natural habitats, archaeological sites and historic buildings. Here is a chance to view some of the most unforgettable images of, and discover less-known truths about, our extraordinary coastline.
