Description

The seaside town of Whitley Bay provides the perfect family outing with arcades, a skate park, mini golf, as well as award-winning ice cream and fish and chips. The famous Spanish City is now open too! Whitley Bay’s golden sands are perfect for sandcastle building and long walks. An outdoor play and water park is close by and ideal for keeping children entertained.

St Mary’s Lighthouse is one the borough’s main attractions, having stood as a beacon along the coastline since 1898. It features a nature reserve and wetland habitat ideal for rockpooling and often seals can be spotted lying on the rocks. The Lighthouse also marks the finish line of the popular North Tyneside 10k Road Race.

Overlooking the sea is a wonderful plaza and events space. Each year, the town hosts the North Tyneside Firework Display attracting tens of thousands of people, as well as a classic car show on the Links, carnival and a food and drink festival on the Spanish City Plaza.

Tynemouth village is a popular place for people from far and wide to come for a variety of reasons. It is steeped in history, has some fabulous attractions, great shopping and a vibrant nightlife. A perfect destination for a day trip, the charming village has something to offer everyone.

The dramatic Tynemouth Priory & Castle dominates the headland. The site dates back centuries and is the burial place of Saints and Kings of the old Kingdom of Northumbria.

 The village has strong maritime history connections, the Tynemouth Volunteer Life Brigade was the first of its kind in the world and its unique story is told in a small museum. The magnificent monument to Lord Collingwood looking across the river is in honour of the local born Admiral who took over from Nelson at the Battle of Trafalgar. There are some truly breathtaking walks to take round Tynemouth, the walk along the seafront is stunning and is rewarded with views of golden sandy beaches. The promenade takes you to the historic North Shields Fish Quay.

A short stroll in and around the village reveals some interesting buildings, many with Blue Plaques.

Tynemouth Aquarium provides fun for all the family with some fantastic exhibits on display of marine life of all different shapes, colours and sizes including otters, seals and even a colony of monkeys!

Tynemouth Park has a dinosaur themed mini golf course and has pedalo boats to hire on its boating lake.

Front Street and Percy Park Road both have a mix of shops well worth browsing as well as traditional pubs, cafes and bistros offering anything from a cup of coffee to a la carte dining.
