Paths, pavements and promenades

We are so lucky to have great paths, pavements and promenades linking our local coastline from Blyth to North Shields.

Only a short drive from Burradon Farm, why not put on your walking shoes and take on the whole 10-mile stretch.   Or just enjoy a section at a time – the possibilities are endless and you are sure to get side-tracked!

Enjoy the breathtaking walk along the beach from Blyth towards Seaton Sluice or choose the 2-mile path running along behind the dunes.

The beautiful headland path from Seaton Sluice to Whitley Bay passes St Mary’s lighthouse and Nature Reserve.  Stop for some seal watching or spy birds and sea life en route.

Whitley Bay has a beautiful beach and promenade with plenty of cafes and coffee stops along the way.  The iconic Spanish City with its huge white dome is a landmark no-one can miss!

Continue 20 minutes further by foot and you will reach Cullercoats and the gorgeous Brown’s Bay.  With pavement cafes, fish and chips and great watersports, Cullercoats has loads on offer.

Onwards towards Tynemouth and the fantastic stretch of beach at Longsands.  You can walk the beach or take the path above with magnificent views of the coastline.  There are cafés at both ends the beach offering stunning views and great fare.

Tynemouth Park features a lovely boating lake, park and inflatable play area for kids with a lovely café too.  Tynemouth Aquarium is also a great hit with families!

Carry on into Tynemouth Village and the stunning Tynemouth Priory at the end of Front Street.  There’s plenty to do in Tynemouth from its weekend market to pavement cafes and restaurants.  King Edwards Bay sits below the Priory and is a great place to relax and enjoy the view.

Head down towards Collingwood Monument and the mouth of the River Tyne.  Follow the riverside walk along to North Shields and its bustling café culture, fish and chips and microbreweries.

This route is part of the National Cycle Network  and is walker and cycle friendly.

Paths, pavements and promenades line this amazing route – happy walking!
