Creswell Beach Car Park

Creswell Beach Car Park

Beach Road, Cresswell, NE61 5LF

Creswell Beach’s position on the Northumbrian coast means it has excellent views to the North and East and is thus a good location for spotting aurora. It’s proximity to Ashington results in some light pollution towards the South.


Creswell Beach Car Park is a Go Stargazing Site. The location has been identified by the Go Stargazing team as a good location for stargazing based on local light pollution levels, distance from nearby towns and cities and offers a safe place to park.
