Welcome to

Seaham Harbour Marina

Historic lifeboat house & heritage centre

A project which began with the purchase and restoration of Seaham's historic George Elmy lifeboat by East Durham Heritage Group (EDHG) led to funding by Durham County Council to restore the old lifeboat house and build a connected heritage centre. The George Elmy lifeboat suffered a terrible disaster at sea in 1962 in which nine people lost their lives following the rescue of the crew from a local fishing coble. The lifeboat is now housed in the lifeboat house and can be seen by the public. 

Please call in to see and listen to the full story presented by EDHG. Opening times are Thursday to Sunday from 10am to 3pm (11am to 3pm in Winter).
