I am currently a PGCE student in Ireland and I am carrying out a teaching placement in Seahouses for 6 weeks alongside a colleague. I was wondering if there are any Asda or Tesco stores near by so that we can do shopping as although Seahouses seems beautiful it also seems to have little shops. Hope someone can help here.

welcome to the forums Katie. I seem to remember a Londis and a Co-op actually in Seahouses on our last visit, if they would help. Good luck for your placement, and enjoy the area if you can manage to squeeze some free time in.

Having checked store locators, the nearest stores of both look to be around 20 miles away. There's a Sainsbury's and a Lidl at Alnwick about 12 miles away. There's a Londis (King Street) and a Cooperative food at Seahouses by the looks of it.

There's quite a big Co-operative Food in the centre that you could get pretty much all you'd need from without travelling. Also recommended in Seahouses is Trotters bakery, great bread and cakes!

If you want a huge supermarket a drive to Alnwick or Berwick would be needed, either way you need to hit the A1 and about a 25 minute drive.
