Seaham Harbour Online


  Seaham Harbour is a rapidly changing and developing town.  We are trying our best to manage the  changes we are experiencing whilst at the same time preserving the heritage and traditions which belong  not to our forefathers but to our children.  On these pages we will introduce you to the old and the new  aspects of our town just as they are - existing side by side. We will show you the attractions in our town  and within easy reach of it.

Where are we?

eaham Harbour is ideally situated for easy travel to anywhere in the North East of England. You will find map and
 location information here.

Seaham Harbour Photo Gallery

 We will not show just the prettiest areas. You may request photographs of particular locations such as your childhood home  or a place which brings back particular memories. We will respond to your requests as best we can. 

Opening of The George Elmy Lifeboat Way
 The lifeboat George Elmy has a special place in the hearts of Seaham people.  The lifeboat and her brave crew were lost   when she capsized returning from a rescue in 1962 with the loss of all  but one of the 10 people aboard.  Seaham's  newest gateway road has been named in honours of the crew of the George Elmy Lifeboat.

 Along The George Elmy Lifeboat Way and Beyond
 The coastline to the south of  Seaham has been dramatically re-opened to both motorists and walkers.
