Ten new stamps celebrating the variety and originality of the UK's seaside architecture are being launched by the Royal Mail today.
The selection features distinctive types of architecture from resorts large and small, from the Victorian and art deco eras, to 1930s' modernism up to the present day.
Among six special stamps are images of Eastbourne's blue-domed seafront bandstand, along with a modern shelter further east on the East Sussex coast in Bexhill-on-Sea.
Meanwhile, a miniature sheet of four stamps has been produced, paying tribute to the piers of Llandudno, Dunoon, Brighton and Worthing, with Southend Pier as the background image.
"This stamp issue captures the spirit of the seaside experience through the buildings and structures that are so distinctive of the UK's resorts, which were designed for the pleasure of the visitor."
All ten stamps can be bought in a presentation pack for £10.05. The miniature sheet depicting four pier stamps is available for £3.80.

The fire that closed Eastbourne Pier three weeks ago has hit the town's traders hard. And none harder than the stallholders who were trading on the pier itself. They were uninsured and faced financial ruin. But today they're trading once more. Not on the pier - but the next best thing. John Ryall reports.
The owners of Eastbourne Pier have described the death as a 'terrible tragedy'.
This is a terrible tragedy and we are working with the Police to establish exactly what happened. Our thoughts are with the family and colleagues at this time"
