Attraction Information

You all know the words - ‘Oh we do like to be beside the seaside!’ Well, that was never more true than on the Seaham Treasure Hunt Trail, where clues lie behind every sandcastle.

To begin busting codes you’ll need your seaside pal: an instantly downloadable PDF. It’ll prove essential with handy hints and directions around the town, leading you to clues hidden here, there and everywhere. Keep an eye out for signposts and monuments as these may just have some extra info waiting for you...

Travel past woodlands and local landmarks like St Mary’s Church which is one of the oldest in the UK! The route should then take approximately 2.5 hours to complete which means plenty of time for splashtastic fun by the sea, as well as a stroll down the promenade.

  • A self-guided treasure trail
  • Crack codes
