The Coast

Our coastline is busy all year round and is simply a top place to be - to get active or just unwind - the choice is yours. 

Grab a coffee and giant muffin at Crusoe's on the Blue Flag award-winning beach Tynemouth Longsands and watch the world go by. Watch the regular surfing lessons or even have a go yourself - its an ideal place to learn.

Further south at King Edward's Bay gaze up and see the magnificent Tynemouth Priory and Castle, then explore the ancient site for yourself. The village has many shops, pubs and cafes and has a great market every weekend at Tynemouth Station. Tynemouth is home to the annual VW Rally, Food and Drink Festival and Mouth of the Tyne Festival.

Whilst in Cullercoats try fish and chips from Bill's or catch up with friends at Beaches and Cream. Many famous artists made Cullercoats their home and their works can be seen in galleries around the world, including The Laing Art Gallery in Newcastle. You can download this guide to their work and stand in some of the very locations they painted and worked from - Cullercoats Art Walk.

Enjoy a walk through Whitley Bay and take a stroll on the beach, relax at the Rendezvous Cafe and try a spot of rockpooling before visiting St. Mary's Lighthouse. The famous lighthouse has to be one of the most photographed structures in the UK. Waves is a great facility for family fun in the water and Playhouse Whitley Bay features an excellent range of shows throughout the year including a very popular pantomime. The town centre has a range of high street names alongside smaller independent traders with specialist product knowledge.
