The coastal walk stretches almost the length of the East Durham coastline. We have visited most of it, walking small sections many times. We prefer to visit on Sunday mornings when it is usually fairly quiet. People are pleasant and friendly.It is a popular area to exercise dogs as there are miles of unspoilt beaches, cliffs and seaside towns.

The coast from Seaham to Hartepool on a lightly cloudy day was a seriously varied and interesting experience. A mix of harbours, old churches and towns plus industrial sites are a back cloth for lovely cliffs and beaches. Top things we enjoyed was the Little Tern colony and seals beached around Seal Sands area. Saw lot of other birds and... More

I live in a small village right on this coast and I feel truly fortunate to have this along with Castle Eden Dene and others right on my door step.

Durham is a great place to visit lots to see and do in a relatively small area, the castle, university and the river walk are fantastic. A smallish town centre with some interesting shops and good eating facilities. Recommend to all.

From Seaham to Hartlepool the Durham Coastline is a spectacle and to be honest a forgotten coastline. Once a coastline thriving with industry it's not been restored to a place of beauty. A particular place to visit is blast beach near to Seaham where you can search for rare seaglass. For the film buffs, it's also where they filmed part... More

Followed the coast north from Hartlepool to Seaham. Times have changed since the mining is all gone but there are some beautiful views and some pleasant beaches on a good day.

Recently moved to the Durham coast and the beaches make for some good walks. The sand is still coloured with coal dust and is very pebbly so don't expect deck chairs and sandcastles galore. Plenty of drift wood and sea glass for those who collect, but what I like best is the lack of other people about!

Been here a few times and have always enjoyed the beach. It's clean and large. Mainlyva mix of pebble and sand, but good access from the free car parks. Great beach for collecting sea glass too.

If you are looking for somewhere different, why not visit this corner of England. Drop in on Easington Colliery to see where Billy Elliot was filmed and finish up in The Lamp Room at Seaham for a warm welcome and excellent food.
