This beach walk is roughly 3 miles long, predominantly with golden sand underfoot. It begins at Seahouses
, where you can park in dedicated car parks
along the seafront, at the harbour wall or behind the Tourist Information Centre
Once you set off, admire the coastline
and Bamburgh Castle
that perches on a rocky plateau ahead. On the approach to the castle, its dramatic presence and sweeping beach are simply breath-taking. Once you arrive, dogs are welcome in the castle grounds, and from here you can admire the enchanting fortresses and some impressive views of the surrounding coastline.
You can also stop for a drink in Bamburgh
village, and many dog walkers visit The Copper Kettle where dogs are welcome in the courtyard. Rest your legs and refresh ready for the walk back, or take the Arriva X18 bus back to Seahouses.
