Admire the dramatic cliff top views, seek out one of England's oldest churches or simply relax at the beach in Seaham.

The tranquil beauty of the sandy North Beach, with its inviting rock pools, is sheltered by a long sea wall which also protects the cliffs from the power of the North Sea. Grab an ice cream or simply enjoy the stunning view from Seaham Harbour Marina or set off on a walk along the coastal footpath to reveal breathtaking views.

Don't miss the perfect photo opportunity with "Tommy" the WWI statue, and visit the heritage and lifeboat centre where the George Elmy is on permanent display. You'll be spoilt for choice when its time to refuel with a wide selection of bars, caf├ęs and restaurants along a busy sea front.
