Probably better known now as Seahouses Harbour, North Sunderland Harbour (its correct title), began life as a small wooden jetty between two natural rock promontories.  It lies at the east end of the village of Seahouses in north east Northumberland in close proximity to the world famous Farne Islands. Nowadays, the harbour is enjoyed by thousands of visitors who come to visit the Farnes, go charter diving and angling or just to simply enjoy a pleasant stroll along the piers of this picturesque harbour.

Check out our new link to North Sunderland Forecasts here.  You'll find info on tides, rain, wind, UV, humidity, pressure, water temperature, visibility and fish activity to name a few...  it doesn't predict the lottery results though; which is a shame!
