Druridge Bay is a living landscape



The park is centred on a lake with surrounding meadows and woods which has been restored from an old opencast coal mine and is maturing into a very pleasant landscape for walks and picnics. In addition, 3 miles of high-quality beach and sand-dunes offer ample space to get away from it all. Facilities include a visitor centre with information, toilets, a cafe and gift shop (open most weekends and school holidays), activities, water sports, bird-watching, walks, orienteering and cycling.

Parking Charges apply throughout site.
