Seahouses and North Sunderland : our friendly and useful community and trades website.


WHERE  WE  ARE

The UK map pinpoints Seahouses.
Seahouses is within the northern half of England's northernmost county, Northumberland. We are further north than Scotland's Selkirk, Ayr, Prestwick, and Mull of Kintyre, as well as every part of Northern Ireland.

Using appropriate facilities such as Ordnance Survey's "Get-a-Map" - or your car sat-nav for that matter - the data for the centre of Seahouses village are -
  • Grid reference NU 2232
  • Post code NE68 7SJ
  • Lat 55.58° N: Long (-)1.65° W
PS: We are sole proprietors of the "Seahouses" name. Google is unable to find any other Seahouses, in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, USA, ... anywhere. (Please tell us if you know different.)
The local map shows that Seahouses plus North Sunderland make a single village, modest in size, with farmland to the west and south, sandy shores and dunes to the east interrupted by the rocks that form the harbour.

There's an aerial view of the area on our Local photos page.

Seahouses features on Ordnance Survey maps -
  • Travelmaster 4 (1cm = 2.5km): "Central Scotland and Northumberland".
  • Landranger 75 (2cm = 1km): "Berwick-upon-Tweed, Holy Island & Wooler".
  • Explorer 340 (4cm = 1km): "Holy Island & Bamburgh, Wooler, Belford & Seahouses".

Stormy days can be impressive too, looking out to the Farne Islands.
