Pages of the Sea

On 11 November, Saunton Sands will be one of the UK beaches chosen to take part in Danny Boyle’s Pages of the Sea event to mark 100 years since Armistice and the end of the First World War.

Over the course of several hours, a portrait of an individual from the First World War will be created on the sand. Then, as the tide rises, it will be washed away as we take a moment to say goodbye.

Communities will gather on beaches across the UK to pay their respects and say thank you to the millions of men and women who left their shores during the war, many never to return.

The hotel offers great views of the beach below, so join us to see this moving tribute to the centenary of Armistice.
