Just eight miles east of NewcastleGateshead and conveniently linked with its own Metro station, Tynemouth encapsulates Great Britain’s seaside charm boasting three blue flag beaches as well as a range of cultural attractions, restaurants, bars, guest houses and pubs.
For families, Blue Reef Aquarium is a must-see with all sorts of sea-creatures and an Amazonian feature including a colony of adorable miniature monkeys, whilst a few miles inland at Segedunum, the Roman fort and museum marking the eastern end of Hadrian’s Wall, is a reminder of the town’s history which the Priory and Castle, with their 2,000 year history, also exemplify beautifully.
Complementing the award-winning beach, Tynemouth Village offers an intriguing mix of antique shops, fashion boutiques, restaurants, wine bars and superb village pubs as well as a quaint and quirky weekend market within the beautiful Victorian Metro Station on Saturday and Sunday mornings not forgetting the Green Ginger Arcade with a range of speciality shops.
Just down the road from Tynemouth the coastal town of Whitley Bay, popular with generations of visitors, is home to St. Mary's Lighthouse and Island which, now a visitor centre, features a nature reserve and wetland habitat perfect for rockpooling. Take a stroll along the promenade or beach and enjoy the salty sea air.
