We love walking along here. We normally walk from Whitley Bay station, right along the promenade, then along to St Mary's Lighthouse and then round the headland to Seaton Sluice. Lovely walk taking in the beautiful scenery.

I spent just one day there, with the promenade still in construction and the Spanish City not ready yet, but I can honestly say the beach walk was really good and, weather permitting, you can enjoy yourself there really well.

We had a lovely walk on the links stopping for refreshment at a great cafe overlooking the bay . Watched the children play on the scooter park and walked the full length of the front. Thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon.

Never been to Whitley Bay before. Lots of work been done & being done on the Promenade, new bits very nice, old bits look bit tatty in comparison. Lots of seaside fish & chip shops, ice cream shops etc. If you want a “traditional” day...More
