Seahouses Harbour.

Seahouses is a busy fishing and leisure harbour and a very popular tourist destination.

It is the largest harbour in Northumberland that is not located in the entrance to a River.

Fishing has been the main trade here for centuries but like most British fishing ports this has declined in recent years.

There was once a trade in lime, as in other harbours on the Northumberland coast and the Kilns have been preserved in the harbour as our first photo below shows.

Seahouses is also the place where trips to the Farne Islands start, with a number of boats offering services to tourists and bird watchers.

The harbour is also used by divers visiting the many shipwrecks around the Farne Islands.
