South Tyneside

There's so much to do in South Tyneside, it doesn't matter what type of short break you're after you're sure to find something that suits you!

The traditional seaside town of South Shields is full of exciting attractions and exhilarating walks. Enjoy the thrills at Ocean Beach Pleasure Park, the region's only seaside funfair, with roller coasters, waltzer, dodgems and more or head to the Water Activities Centre on Littlehaven Beach and experience sports such as sailing, open canoeing and kayaking.

Sandhaven Beach, Marsden Bay and The Leas offer a fantastic mixture of golden sands and spectacular views, meaning you can get the most out of the coast whatever the weather.

From the Romans to the Venerable Bede, South Tyneside is overflowing with history. The 26 mile South Tyneside Heritage Trail is a pathway from the past that will take you through rugged coastline and farmland to reclaimed industrial sites and bustling streets. You can also learn about South Tyneside's favourite daughter Catherine Cookson, one of the world's most famous writers.

Art on the Riverside was the largest programme of public art in the UK and brings together many visually stunning pieces from local, national and international artists. Works include Spirit of South Shields, Wavemaker and Conversation Piece.
