Sunderland Guide: Seaburn

Sunderland Guide Home

Location: On Sunderland’s seafront, Whitburn Road. Reachable by bus and metro.

Twinned with Roker, Seaburn is a beach resort on the seafront of Sunderland, known for its pristine appearance and golden sand, making it one of the more favourable places in the city to visit.

Once a thriving area in the early 20th century before the advent of modern international tourism, Seaburn is undergoing a revival and has experienced significant investment and regeneration which has broadly expanded the range of facilities available for visitors.

Seaburn now boasts a large number of places to eat and drink. This most notably now includes the Seaburn STACK facility and the House of Zen, but also a considerable number of restaurants and bars on Whitburn Road. It also hosts several large hotels, including the newly built Seaburn Inn, as well as the Grand Hotel.

Up above from the beach, it has also hast several open green spaces, and hosts the lighthouse which once sat on Sunderland’s old south pier.

Nearby Amenities: House of Zen, Bar88, Prego Bar, Gabriele’s, Minchella’s, Goa Exemplary, The Shagorika, Queen’s Cafe Fish and Chips, Seaburn Bar and Grill.
