Finding a wonderful day out activity around the UK has been made easier with a new tool. The Great British Beaches and Experiences enables Britons to prolong summer and find the best beaches and things to do near them.

Staycations have been the holiday of choice for Britons this summer, giving many a taste of the great exploring options around the country.

From key beaches to exciting activities, a new tool is helping Britons find the best days out around their locations.

The tool was released by Find Me A Gift to compare seaside sites and choose the best beach or fun day out.

Margate the Bay in Kent is a popular sandy beach with a promenade.

An amusement arcade, donkey rides, cafes, shops and children's play area make it a fantastic option for a late summer and autumn day out.

There are also a lot of fun experiences to be had around The Bay.

Some of the activities Britons can enjoy nearby include golfing lessons, triple supercar thrill, and junior paintball experience.

On the Isle of Wight, Whitecliff Bay has two hundred metres of sand and shingle.

With a holiday park and activities such as a Helicopter Buzz Ride, a steam train and afternoon tea journey and English Heritage sites nearby, it's a great destination for a day or a long weekend.

Another popular beach, if not one of the most popular in England is Brighton Beach.

The pebbly beach has Blue Flag waters and a four-mile promenade.

The amusement arcades and Brighton Pier are famous attractions on the Brighton seafront, but there are also a lot of activities to try nearby.

Examples of things to do include a glass painting workshop, golf lessons, bungee jumping and a candle making class.

In Dorset, Weymouth's Central Beach is a great summer destination with donkey rides and punch and judy shows.

But it's also a good option for Britons in the area who want to try adrenaline activities at Rock Reef, go on a helicopter ride, take golf lessons or play mini golf.

Sandy Bay in Devon sandy beach with rock pools at one end, backed by high cliffs.

It's great for fossils-spotting and there is a large caravan resort.

Nearby activities include a recycled China mosaic workshop, iBounce and junior paintball.

The end of summer does not mean it is the end of days out at the beach.

Autumn is a fantastic season to head out and explore the coast.

With plenty of activities and attractions around some of the most popular beaches in the country, Britons who want to make the most of their days off will have plenty to do.
