Penelope goes on a tour of the nation’s most beautiful seaside destinations

After the success of the actress’s Hidden Villages comes this new series, where Penelope Keith explores some of the villages dotted around the UK’s coast.

There, she delves into their history, meets many of the people who live there and hears their stories. The first episode finds her in West Sussex and the Isle of Wight.

In Bosham, she learns the real reason behind King Canute’s battle with the tide, while in Birdham, she meets Olympian Sarah Ayton for a sail up the estuary.

Like its predecessor, this all takes place at an appropriately leisurely pace, making for a thoroughly satisfying and engaging watch.
