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.

  • We visited here late afternoon and fortunately the weather was very good I went in the sea and there were a lot of others also on the beach and in the sea it is a very safe bathing and sandy area.

  • Great place for families and there's plenty of dog walkers. It's a lovely walk around the lake and it even offers kayaking too. It's also only a 5 minute walk to the beautiful Northumberland coast. The beach is nice and clean and you can sit back taking in the view enjoying the horses ride up and down also with a vast stretch of sand you'll easily find a spot. Also parking is now FREE!
  • Lovely place, fairly tranquil (on a week day anyway). A good hour and a half walking around the lake. Brilliant spot for a picnic and unlike most places like this there is no fee for parking, something rare now-a-days
  • Something here for everyone, lake for watersports, cracking beach, scenic walks, kids play areas. Plenty parking and cafe and toilets are in good nick.
  • A lovely park that combines a walk round the lake watching nature do it's thing and then you can walk to a beautiful beach just two minutes away and walk along the lovely beach and once your in the need of a break, you can stop in the information centre for drinks and food in the tea shop.
  • We had a lovely walk around the lake with the kids. Unfortunately most of the play area has been dismantled.
