Visitor Guide To Seaburn
Seaburn is a seaside resort and suburb of Sunderland, North East England. The village of Whitburn borders the area to the north. To the west and south-west is Fulwell and to the south the coastal resort of Roker. Other areas around Seaburn include the villages of Boldon, and Cleadon.
Virtually all of Seaburn consists of low-density private housing interspersed with open parkland, laid out in the middle of the 20th century. Much of the housing is amongst the most expensive in Sunderland, with many large mansion houses situated along the coast, and on adjoining streets.
The seafront is home to a sandy blue flag beach, seaside promenades, an amusement park, playgrounds, fish and chip shops, small guest houses and one four star hotel, operated by Marriott, and known as the Seaburn Marriott hotel. The main shopping street is Sea Road, which runs from the seafront up through Fulwell to the Seaburn Metro station.
In the late 1980s, the old Seaburn Hall site was redeveloped, with a Morrison's supermarket, new amusement park and leisure and fitness centre. Previously, Seaburn Hall had been a famous dance hall and live music venue. Seaburn was a favourite place of the painter L. S. Lowry. A large Lowry painting is displayed in the local Morrison's supermarket.
Sunderland International Air-show is the biggest free annual air-show in Europe, held near the Roker and Seaburn seafronts. It takes place over the course of two days, normally the final weekend in July and attracts around 1,000,000 spectators every year. The air-show features a large number of planes, including the Red Arrows and the Eurofighter Typhoon. In addition to the planes, the seafront plays host to a range of food counters, stalls and fairground games
The Royal Navy traditionally have a warship off the coast every year, usually the HMS Ocean, the adopted warship of Sunderland, however in 2007, HMS Albion made an appearance instead as HMS Ocean had other commitments. The air-show was first held in 1988, and was planned to be a one-off event, when it attracted 250,000 spectators.
The Tyne and Wear Metro links Seaburn, to Newcastle city centre, and to other destinations in Tyne and Wear including Whitley Bay, Newcastle Airport, and Sunderland. A half-hourly ferry service connects South Shields, about 4 miles north of Seaburn, to the North Shields Fish Quay on the opposite bank of the River Tyne.
