Seaham's remarkable transformation

A former mining town, Seaham has been transformed by a �10million restoration project that has brought back its natural beauty. Impeccable cliff tops overlook a secluded shingle beach. Wander the promenade footpaths and take in the breakthtaking views, and then head to one of many seafront cafes, bars and restaurants to recharge. Explore St. Mary the Virgin Church - one of just a handful of Britain's oldest surviving churches, then head to see 'Tommy', the WWI statue known locally as the town's most famous landmark.

The marina is home to the East Durham Heritage & Lifeboat Centre, an interesting museum that celebrates Seaham's proud maritime past.
