We walked from Nose's Point along the cliff top taking in the views and reading the information boards. Further along we crossed the railway line (with care) and arrived at Hawthorn Dene. Some of the woodland in the dene has existed for about 400 years and the area was designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest due to the variety... More

There are Northerners who remember Seaham in its coal mining days who have never visited for years and who perpetuate the myth that the town is not worth visiting. Well it certainly is! Whatever the weather the beach is stunning. I love to see the waves lashing over the pier or on a calm day wander on the pebbled beach... More

Waves pounding up the beach, dogs running along the water's edge, couples arm in arm, children playing, the sun just waffling, the wind biting cold. We had hot chocolate and then fish and chips. Heaven.

We called in at Seaham on the off chance as it was part of the coastline we hadn't visited before. What a lovely place - the sea was blue and the coastline bathed in winter sunshine. We talked to a local man who was very friendly and gave us a lot of information about the coastal walk. We intend to... More

We live close to Hartlepool and whenever possible we try to visit the coastal area. There are some stunning walks, deserted beaches and lots of fresh air. This area is definitely worth a visit on a weekly basis where you can take in the scenery, breath in the clean air and get away from it all. Miles of walks where... More

I used to live a few miles from here but had to move inland due to new job. This is one are of the North east I really miss the most. Although not quite as rugged as Northumberland, it has its own charm and character to appreciate. During the summer months, put on your walking shoes and enjoy what it... More

The Durham Coastal Footpath is a superb 11 mile walking route from Seaham in the north to Crimdon in the south, leading through stunning clifftop scenery with links into coastal villages each with their own special stories to tell. This coast is one that has been affected by constant change, both natural and manmade, but it has always been a... More
