Hard to find can be hard to park and get access to this rocky coast. Be ready for the winds!! We saw no facilities nor places to stop for a quick bite. Way too much trash and spray paint and the like vandalism

It's hard to imagine what Durham's coast used to be like when it was polluted with the spoils of mining and the beaches were black with waste wantonly dumped on them. The hard work of Durham County Council, its partners and the power of nature...More

I dont know if I want to tell everyone about the East Durham Coast, as it such a beautiful part of the country, we want to keep it all for ourselves!! We have some amazing unspoiled beaches and views along the coastline.

Seaham is a nice place to visit, with plenty of cute little restaurants and cafes to linger in even on a winter's day, and has a nice relaxed vibe to it. Interesting sculptures to look at, notably the one of "Tomy" the WW1 soldier.
