We get off at St Peters Metro station and walk all the way to Seaham. Stop off at Grannie Annies for lunch. Lovely walk especially on a nice day. Looking forward to the Tall Ships arriving shortly.

We had a really relaxing day searching for sea glass if that's your thing. Not many people and just listening to the waves made an enjoyable outing for us

I'd read the reviews of seaham on trip advisor which made me want to visit. It was a nice place but not how I'd expected. Perhaps it was because I visited on a showery April day and the sky was overcast and the sea grey....More
