Seahouses is one of Northumberland’s best-known villages and tourist spots, with a great mix of tourist activities and beautiful outdoor attractions. Read on to discover some of our top recommendations of things to see and do.
Seahouses is quite a small town which means there aren’t too many different places to go within the area, although its location on the Northumberland coast means that there are plenty of brilliant nearby attractions.
Within the town itself, you have the harbour and the RNLI lifeboat station, and to the south of this is the strange 'Pooder Hoose' which is a small stone hut originally used for storing gunpowder. Seahouses Beach to the north of the town is best for rock pooling, whilst the sand to the south is softer and better suited for building sandcastles or spending the day by the water.
One of the best things to do in Seahouses is spending time on the beach, whether you’re braving a dip in the sea or just walking along the waterline and collecting shells. Sample some of the local fish and chips from the town and take them down to the sand, or enjoy an ice cream with your toes in the water if the weather is warm enough.
The most recommended thing to do in Seahouses is to visit The Faroe Islands, which are located 2 and 3 miles off the coast between Seahouses and Bamburgh. Here you’ll find one of the most famous bird sanctuaries in the British Isles along with an incredible wild and rugged coastline and some seriously impressive views.
Walking is another very popular activity for those who are passing through Seahouses, as the Northumberland Coast Path runs through the town and continues on to the north. The town is also home to the Seahouses Golf Club, so if you’re a fan of the game then it’s a great place to play a few rounds.
Northumberland is known for being quite a chilly part of the UK most of the year, so many people consider the summer months the best time of year to visit Seahouses, particularly in August when The Great North Bike Ride begins in the town. If you don’t mind a bit of rain then you’ll have the beaches and countryside to yourself the rest of the year, although we wouldn’t recommend swimming in the sea unless you’re a seasoned wild swimmer!
