Beach huts have been around in the UK since the 19th Century, and were created to offer shelter from both the wind and sun, and made from wood. Some of the first to be introduced in the UK were on wheels, in the Victorian times, so that they could keep their modesty.
Much has changed in the UK since that era, but the beach house is still very popular, but for different reasons. There are currently about 20,000 beach huts in the UK, they are normally made from wood and come in all different shapes and colours.
In Dorset in 2006 a pre-war beach hut sold for £216,000, which is one of the most expensive sales of beach huts in the UK, but it does have permission to sleep inside.
