Enjoy the view at Red Acre Point
Red Acre Point was the site of the port's first lighthouse and later became a defensive gun emplacement during the Second World War. This landmark has a fascinating history behind it and now serves as a viewing platform where visitors can enjoy the coastline.
The steps leading up to the viewing platform are currently being replaced thanks to SeaScapes, Seaham Marina Community Interest Company and National Lottery players through the National Lottery Heritage Fund programme.
The new steps, which will allow more visitors to enjoy the landmark, will lead to a breath-taking view taking in the coastline from Blyth to Whitby on a clear day.
The next phase of the project will be the addition of interpretation panels telling the history of the monument's unique history, the seascape, and what is hidden beneath the waves.
If you witness any form of anti-social behaviour on our slope beach or the wider marina, please report it to the Police immediately.
