Seaburn Metro station is a former National Rail station converted for use by the Tyne and Wear Metro for the Sunderland line extension in 2002. Northern Rail passenger services, freight trains and Grand Central empty stock workings continue to pass through the station but do not stop.
The platforms at Seaburn are situated below ground level, and are accessed by lift and access ramp. Southbound trains continue to South Hylton via Sunderland, while northbound trains head towards the Airport via Gateshead and Newcastle. A small newsagent is situated adjacent to the southbound entrance.
