Seaham Beach is a long stretch of sand sitting beneath grassy cliffs and is part of the Durham Heritage Coast.
The beach is often used for sea angling competitions.
Until 1921, Seaham was the location of the largest glass-bottle works in Britain. Founded by John Candlish in 1853, under the patronage of the 4th Marquess of Londonderry. During the works operation glass waste was dumped into sea, and now with every tide sand-polished glass stones can be gathered.
Parking at various positions along the seafront, toilets, picnic area, pub.
As you move towards the harbour and Red Acre Beach you get the main part of the town with a selection of places to eat.
