I have a couple of questions hopefully you guys can help me with.
I'm just starting metal detecting, I've got my self equinox 600 as I am planning to do mostly beach detecting.
Problem is I don't have a driving license so I need to use public transport.
That's why I chose to detect on the beach for beginning as they mostly have good public transport.
I live in London if you guys can advise any places worth trying with some public transport?
I was thinking about botany bay its good 3 h in the train but can reach there.
Do you guys ever try it?
Also, do I need any special permission?
If you guys can help me with some knowledge I will be grateful.
Thanks and happy hunting.

Secondly, I would suggest a look at the forum Beach and Rivers forum which you'll find in the blue panel over there (under the general heading 'Main') which covers matters that will be of interest for beach/river detecting.
A read of the forum rules at the top of this page is also recommended.
Good Luck - Regards ss47

If you want to do beaches I know for sure that all of the Southend beaches are relatively easy with a Nox but you need to choose your tides carefully as you only get about 3 or 4 hours max of good detecting on low tides.
PS All the Kent beaches can be good when the tides and conditions are right. Unfortunately they often aren't and it's a damn long way to go on the offchance.
