A number of key events take place in English seaside towns.  The recovery centres for donors are also often located by the sea, perhaps for the therapeutic qualities that 'sea air' is reputed to have. 

These locations also serve to push the story of Never Let Me Go out to the fringes of England, where the characters are perhaps less likely to interact with the rest of society.

The towns of Cromer in Norfolk, and Littlehampton in Sussex are the seaside settings for two important episodes.  The first of these, Cromer, is a scene in which there is much hope, while in Littlehampton the hopes of the characters are revealed to be in vain.
