Things to do and see
With dramatic and far-reaching views filled with the environmental splendours of a dynamic coastline, the Durham coast waits to be explored. It boasts a superb coastal footpath 14km long, which includes access points onto the beach. The National Cycle network defines access routes for cyclists onto the coast.
Remember a car isn’t always needed to enjoy the Heritage Coast. Public transport, cycling and walking are the most rewarding ways to explore the coast. There are ample car parks along the Heritage Coast, with toilet facilities at Seaham.
