Take a walk along the cliffs of Durham Heritage Coast, a once-booming coal mining area now restored to its natural beauty, including the spectacular rock pools at Blackhall rocks. The 17.7 km (11 mi) trail running along the cliffs from Seaham to Crimdon in the south makes a great way to take in the scenery. The coast supports a variety of plant and animal life, and features hidden caves, streams, and waterfalls. If you have time, explore the coast's towns with shops and cafes. Plan your visit to Durham Heritage Coast and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Durham vacation builder.
