East Durham coast once held loading staithes for the many coal mines. It is now clean and beautiful, with nature reserves such as Blackhall Rocks. The beaches are wide and sandy and mostly easily accessible.

This is a great trip. Go to Seaham to see the Tommy statue- even the least emotional will be moved. Have fish and chips from the sea front or visit the harbour. Who would know that there were once sea pits here. (Remember Get Carter). Check out the beach in north Seaham or visit the amazing Seaham Hall ( expensive... More

We went to the east durham coast and had the coastal walk in Easington. We also went down to the beach. The beach and coastal walk are really beautiful we enjoyed it.

Ive visited the coastline many times and its always been worth the trip. Around Seaham we are spoilt with two pebble/sand beaches within walking distance to the shops. Additionally, noses point (just past the industrial area) has two more amazing big pebble beaches and a great large cliff walking areas for family adventures.

On the drive there we listened to some cool songs which was cool I guess. However, what spoiled the experience was being unable to reach the actual sea, despite there being people down... More

Excellent little beach and nice for a walk. We spent a good hour or so searching for seaglass which is quite good fun. Apparently it there because two old glass factories used to dump the glass into the sea 100 years or so ago. It's now washed up on the beach and looks like stone!

We drove from Durham to South Shields then along the coast to Sunderland and back inland to Durham. The coastline is superb with stunning views. The coastal route offers plenty of places to park and walk, picnic or just sit and enjoy the scenery. Stopping to overlook Marsden Rock was lovely.
