Seaham is a nice place to visit, with plenty of cute little restaurants and cafes to linger in even on a winter's day, and has a nice relaxed vibe to it. Interesting sculptures to look at, notably the one of "Tomy" the WW1 soldier.

The easy walking terrain makes it popular with dog walkers and enables you to enjoy the scenery and sea air whilst you stroll along. There are steps down to sea level to cross several steep valleys, known locally as Denes and these give opportunity to...More

The drive along the coast was okay and uneventful. Hartleypool is very industrial and needs to be seen to be believed.

A former mining town, Seaham is definitely a work in progress. One beach has golden sand the other, dark brown from many years of mining and waste but now in recovery with a haven of wildlife having returned to live. We walked for 12 miles...More

No longer the grim sea-coal strewn coast portrayed in 'Get Carter' but now a rugged wild cliff top stretch with a few places to access the bays. Nature reclaiming back from the mining industry - a lot quicker than could have been hoped.
