North Tyneside

Situated on the North Sea coast, North Tyneside's award-winning beaches, fun family events, brilliant attractions and welcoming places to stay make it a great choice for a short break.

The area's stunning beaches are a great place to spend some time no matter what time of year it is. Learn to surf on the Tynemouth Longsands, voted Britain's fourth best beach, or dig out your bucket and spade for the annual Whitley Bay Sandcastle Competition in the shadow of the Spanish City Dome. If you're better with a ball then head down to Longsands and take part in the big beach volleyball tournament or the Newcastle Falcons Touch Rugby tournament which are held every July.

Climb the 137 steps to the top of St Mary's Lighthouse and admire the majestic panoramic view of the coast, we guarantee it'll be worth it! Discover 2,000 years of history on your visit to the ancient fortress of Tynemouth Priory & Castle. Turn up at the right time of year and witness the magnificent Mouth of the Tyne Festival or spooky Scary Tales event.

Wildlife lovers can come face to face with fish, otters, seals and monkeys at Blue Reef Aquarium, as well as learn more about the natural world. If you'd rather walk with dinosaurs Lost World Adventure Golf has enough prehistoric fun for the entire family!

Take a roam around Segedunum Roman Fort, Baths & Museum, which was built in AD122 to protect the eastern end of Hadrian's Wall from barbarian attack, or visit the world's first Volunteer Life Brigade at Tynemouth.
