Lovely beaches to walk along! Great for walking dogs (just check the tide times before you go down, best when the tide is out)

The Roker and Seaburn beaches are great and never too busy. There's a few nice coffee shops/pubs on the sea front to people watch and enjoy a nice drink.

You Definitely need a parking ticket using the car parks at Roker Beach. There are quite a few wardens around too. If you have a disabled badge as my husband has then you don’t need a ticket.
