The holiday town and fishing port of Seahouses did not exist until 1889. This is when the harbour was built in order to improve the local fishing and lime industries.
Throughout the year Seahouses, known as 'The Gateway to the Farne Islands', is appealing to both tourists and visitors alike, with many using it as an access point to the nearby Farne Islands.
This small seaside town is arguably the most popular holiday resort on the Northumberland Coast, catering for large numbers of both day visitors and longer stay holidaymakers each year.
During peak holiday periods and bank holidays, the town and its harbour area can be particularly busy.
