Druridge Bay Country Park & Visitors Centre includes 3.5 miles of beautiful beach and sand dunes, plus a large freshwater Lake surrounded by woods and meadows. The variety of surroundings means you are sure of an enjoyable visit whatever the time of year.
Take a pleasant walk around Ladyburn Lake, or enjoy a sheltered picnic overlooking the park. The lake is available by permit for non-motorised boats sports. Windsurfing, Canoeing and Sailing courses are held each summer.
You can enjoy watching the birds on the lake and seashore discover the many wild flowers on the dunes and through the park meadows, or trek across the beach and see what wonders lie on the rocks. Or for a more active, try your hand at flying a kite or take a dip in the sea.
The park is a good base from which to explore the surrounding countryside by bike or on foot, or just to stop for a rest and have a snack on your journey.
The Visitor Centre has information and displays about the local area with a café and shop which is open at weekends and during the school holidays. Access is suitable for wheelchair users. Just outside the visitor centre is a young children’s play area and a fun play area on the events field for the older children and young at heart which ensures there’s something for all age groups.
We can cater for group day’s outings but please let us know if you’re planning to bring a large party in advance.
