Some great beaches around Roker and Seaburn. We are lucky enough to live right by the coast. Daughter loves throwing skimmers in sea.

Sunderland sea front has never looked better. I am proud of our sea front. Sunderland sea front has a lot to offer. Great pubs and restaurants.

I live a five minute walk from the beaches and coastal shops/restaurants. I never take them for granted! A beautiful place to walk and enjoy the air.

Had a 5-30 walk this morning as the sun came up, bracing and well worth it. Beaches up here are as good as anywhere in the country.
