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
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.
