For those looking for a nice autumnal stroll along the Suffolk coast this weekend, there will be plenty of time during daylight hours to walk along the beach while the tide is out.
The Met Office publishes tide timetables for some of Britain’s main coastal resorts, so that people know the safest times for walking along the beach or sailing.
The differing tide times are caused by the interaction between the moon, sun and Earth.
As the positions of Earth, sun and moon change in relation to each other, the gravitational pull on the oceans varies.
This causes a change in the height of the sea, meaning the tides go out and in.

UK beaches mostly experience a semi-diurnal tide, meaning there are two high tides and two low tides each day.
These occur approximately every 12hrs, 25mins.
