Fish and Chips in Seahouses

Aug 17, 2007
One of many small towns and villages on this under populated stretch of the Northumberland coast is now a resort with a fishing harbour.

Situated on the North Northumberland coast and designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, since 1958 in recognition of the quality of the landscape. Seahouses is the ideal base from which to explore the Scottish Borders and the hills and coastline of this magnificent part of England. The area is best known for its sweeping sandy beaches and open views, rolling dunes and rocky cliffs, isolated islands, dramatic castles, ancient relics and rich wildlife.

You will find everything you need to know about Seahouses and our surrounding area, including the famous Farne Islands and the Longstone Lighthouse. We are a short ride away from most of the major tourist attractions in this part of Northumbria including Alnwick, home of Harry Potter and the Alnwick Garden. A visit to the bird and seal colonies on the Farne Islands is a must during your stay and several boat trips can be taken from the harbour.

You will find listings for all kinds of tourist accommodation with prices to suit your budget. From the casual week end visitor to the summer holiday maker Seahouses can offer accommodation and facilities second to none. There are a wide range of hotels, guesthouses, caravan and campsites in the area.

Dont leave before sampling the delicious fish and chips, watch out for the seagulls. Market day is Friday.

For nearly 180 years the lifeboat station has operated an all weather lifeboat and its crews have been presented with five awards for gallantry. Today the station operates both an all weather lifeboat and an inshore lifeboat it can be found in Seahouses.

The Marine Life Centre is set out on 4 spacious levels. Including a large trout pond where you can feed the fish, a tides out touch pool where you can get hands on with the crabs. The other levels comprise of exhibitions with audio visual conversations between fishing families. A must for all the family.

The Development Trust benefits both tourists and residents with listings of local amenities, businesses and services. The fascinating history of our village has been brought to life with our Heritage Walks around Seahouses. The Guide takes you around three heritage walks which inlcude the coastline, the countryside and the old towns. The walks are entitled The Harbour and Old Seahouses Time Trail. There are nine information panels along the routes a wildlife panel on the sea front. A childrens quiz to accompany the walks will be available from the Tourist Information.
