Seaham Overview

Seaham is not the typical tourist destination and can rather classified as “Off the beaten path” or “Special Interests”. It is a seaside town in an area which has been weakened by the decline of heavy industries such as mining in the 20th century and has not found a way to recover. Don't expect a beauty of a town, but worn-out structures and closed pubs. This is real England at its hardest, but if you like reality, this might be a place for you.

Sights in Seaham include a 9th century church (one of the 20 oldest in England) and the ruins of a small castle in the outskirts of the town. The Marina has a couple of shops next to a lifeboat museum and there are a couple of sculptures dotted long the coastline. It is a rather quite place and offers only a limited number of places of interest. However, this also makes it a good place for a relaxing daytrip in the Durham/Sunderland/Hartlepool area together with a walk along the coast.

With hourly railway connections to Newcastle, Sunderland, Hartlepool and Middlesbrough, it is easy to get to and away from Seaham quickly.
