Folly House Beach is located in Canary Wharf, and is known for overlooking the O2 Arena. Folly House Beach boasts a smooth, pebbly surface, and isn't as busy as the Southbank Beach.

Visitors of Folly House Beach can enjoy the calming sound of water sitting on the pebbles admiring the hustle and bustle of the city. It's everything you need to get your mind back on track! However if you do visit please make sure you take your litter with you.

Great swim and relax on the beach, don't wait for your holidays, use what's around you all year. – Google Review

This is a great place to bring the kids before a concert or to unwind after a long day of work in London's financial district! Why head to Brighton Beach with all those crowds when you can come to the secluded Folly House Beach?
