Seahouses railway station was the brick and wood built eastern terminus of the single track branch of the North Sunderland Railway, in north east England. The line connected village and port of Seahouses to the railway network via a junction at Chathill.
Authorised in 1892 the North Sunderland Railway was built privately to serve the newly constructed harbour at Seahouses. Construction started in 1896, and the line opened in 1898 for freight on 1 August, and passengers on 18 December. The line was rarely profitable and thus the proposed station at Fleetham, and the extension to Bamburgh were never constructed. The line was taken over by the LNER in 1939, and the line closed on 27 October 1951 and officially wound up in the April 1952.
The construction of the station provided a link to the fishing port and for day trips along the coast and to the Farne Islands.
The station was demolished and the site is now the town car park.
