England Coast Path - South Bents To Amble

Northumberland, Tyne and Wear

72 km / 45 miles
Opened in 2018 this section in the north-east goes from South Bents just north of Sunderland following the coast past South Shields and across the River Tyne via a ferry. It then continues passing Tynemouth and Whitley Bay and onto Blyth crossing the River Blyth and later the River Wansbeck. After leaving the industrial areas it continues onto the former Northumberland Coast Path from Creswell eventually reaching the small port of Amble along a beautiful stretch of the north-east coast.
