Seaton Carew

"Just back from a visit to Seaton, your volunteers there were fabulous!."


We can be found in Unit 1 of Seaton bus station, near the clock. We are the unit closest to the ice cream shop!

Seaton Carew's beautiful beach stretches at least a mile in each direction of the resort centre.  The southern area of the beach leads to protected sand dunes, home of nesting terns in the early summer months.

Access to the beach

From our storage until the path takes you to a small ramp straight onto the promenade. From here there is another ramp with a gentle incline which leads directly onto the beach.

Seaton Carew has a large expanse of beach, because of this there is a lot of soft sand to cover before reaching the harder sand. This can make pushing quite difficult so needs to be considered before visiting.

When the tide is high there can be very little harder sand, so it’s always advisable to check the tides before you come. You can do this using the Tide Times website Opens in a new window.


At Seaton Carew, we usually have

Please be aware the equipment available may change as we sometimes move equipment between sites.


The promenade is all on one level and has access to a number of cafes, pubs and fish & chip shops. There are also 2 wheelchair friendly picnic benches near the splash play park.


Restrictions are in place on certain areas of the beach between May & October. For detailed information you can check Hartlepool Borough Council websiteOpens in a new window
