5. Learn about golf at the British Golf Museum (currently closed for refurbishment).

13. Go put your feet in the sea either at Castle or East Sands (only for summer months!).


14. Try yourself at golf or observe the golfers at the 18th hole of the Old Course (and have your picture taken at the iconic swilcan bridge).

15. Live music at the Criterion.
