A Day at the Seaside . . . .

Exploring the Durham Heritage Coast

The North East region from Sunderland to Hartlepool offers the Durham Heritage Coast that has emerged from its industrial past to an area worthy of Heritage Coast status with one of the finest coastlines in England.

The coastal path that runs along much of the coast leads you through a wonderful mosaic of great natural, historical and geological interest with dramatic views along the coastline and out across the North Sea, an area rich in shallow bays and headlands with yellow Magnesian Limestone cliffs.

There are many bustling seaside promenades to visit along the coast such as Seaton Carew, Hartlepool, and Seaham all offering award winning ice cream parlours and fish and chip shops. There is a mixture of sandy and pebble beaches available to choose from, maybe try your hand at some Sea Glass collecting, what colours will you find?
