Druridge Bay Park

Druridge Bay is a living landscape, rich in wildlife. 

In the 19th century coal was mined nearby and during World War II Druridge Bay was thought of as a possible landing place for a German invasion. You can still see the anti-tank blocks and pill boxes that were constructed to defend our shores. If you enjoy sailing you can launch your own boat on the park's lake.

Within the park you will also find a series of smaller nature reserves home to everything from a resident herd of swans to rare birds like the Golden Eye Snipe. The bay has its own partnership which body is currently working to raise money to improve it further and turn Druridge into a nationally renowned wildlife tourism destination.

Druridge Bay Country Park has all the amenities you will need to enjoy a day at the coast with toilets, cafe and children's play area. The park is centred on a lake with surrounding meadows and woods which has been restored from an old opencast coal mine and is maturing into a very pleasant landscape for walks and picnics. In addition, 3 miles of high-quality beach and sand-dunes offer ample space to get away from it all.

Facilities include a visitor centre with information, toilets, a cafe and gift shop (open most weekends and school holidays), activities, water sports, bird-watching, walks, orienteering and cycling. For further details on any of the events contact the Park staff at Druridge Bay Country Park, Hadston, Nr Morpeth, Northumberland. NE61 5BX.  Normal Car Parking charges apply throughout the year.
