Six miles scenic drive northwards from Carrickfergus lies the fine seaside town of Whitehead with its commanding views across Belfast Lough. Whitehead is the base for the Railway Preservation Society of Ireland, and the old steam locomotives and carriages can be seen travelling to many parts of the country. There are steam train trips available and a friendly Festival during the summer season. The idyllic coastal setting and picturesque centre means it is ideal for an ice-cream stop off and a leisurely stroll along the promenade. The rugged Antrim Coast can be appreciated from the beautiful Blackhead Path, with the option of an invigorating climb up the stone steps to the Lighthouse.
