Walk Overview

This is a lovely walk that begins in the seaside town of Seahouses and makes its way along the coast towards Bamburgh Castle.

We start off on a tarmac coastal path that passes through the sand dunes, avoiding the cliffs and rock pools. As this path comes to an end there is a small track that leads down onto the beach.

This is quite a steep path – but if you’d prefer something gentler, continue further along the sand dune track and you’ll find a wider and flatter entrance onto the beach.

From here on, it is a beautiful walk along the beach, around the headland, passing under the shadows of Bamburgh Castle, and on to the car park where there is an accessible track.

For this walk you need to make sure you know the tide times – there are plenty of ways to get off the beach if you are caught out – but some include stiles you need to climb over.

Access TOG Verdict:

Whilst this is a lovely walk that is accessible for wheelchair users – it is only suitable for those who use an all terrain wheelchair that is suitable for use on a beach (check the manufacturers instructions on this before setting off). For a wheelchair beach with more straightforward access, visit Beadnell Bay.

Remember to prepare properly before heading out on any type of walk or outdoor activity. Tell people where you are going and what time you are expected back. As Wainwright says "There's no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing".
