Visited Seaham for first time in years...it's lovely now. A few shops and cafes along the prom and beaches are great to walk along and very clean. Well worth another visit....fish and chips delicious!

From Crimdon Dene in the south to Seaham in the north, this stretch of coast is wonderful. Clean beaches, wonderful scenery, leisurely walks, this is a fantastic coastline to visit and enjoy.

Visited Blackhall Rocks beach, very easy access and a lovely beach to walk along with the dogs. Rock pools would entertain children along with the sea caves

We wanted in on the sea glass action this summer, so we drove an hour from our house and ended up at Vane Tempest beach in Seaham.

It is worth exploring the coast in the east Durham area. If you haven't been for a while you will find much of it has been restored. There's a nature reserve, beach walks and cliff top views. In Seaham there is a nice cafe and very good fish and chips.

The east coast is excellant very under rated and ignored. Crimdon Dene, Blackhall Rocks and Hartlepool are beautiful beaches and never full. Dogs are allowed on the beach all years round and Crimdon Dene caravan park is lovely and the on sight cluc serves excellant meals with friendly and helpful staff.
