Seaham Beach Information
Seaham Beach is a long stretch of sand sitting beneath grassy cliffs and is part of the Durham Heritage Coast. The beach is also referred to as Seaham North beach as it runs north away from the town itself.
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.
You have parking at various positions along the seafront and facilities include toilets, picnic area and 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.
The beach is often used for sea angling competitions along with the North pier of the harbour.
Seaham Beach is dog friendly and allows dogs all year.
