Half a mile of golden sand, and stretching a good distance back to the cliff slopes. Ideal for an afternoon in the sun, swimming and with a wonderful surf - it's one of the UK Surfing Championship locations. In the cooler months it's perfect for walking, jogging and sport; you'll even catch the Toon training there on occasions.
Tynemouth is an old village bursting with charm and history. Located at the mouth of the River Tyne, (surprisingly!), ten miles east of Newcastle it is easily accesible by the local Metro service or car.
For something a bit different on a weekend & only 20 minutes from the city.
Hop on the Metro & explore the weekly market housed in the Victorian railway station, lots of books, crafty stuff, and bric-a-brac to wade through, with a farmer's market once a month. Then potter through the town centre, check out the priory ruins, stroll on the sandy beach, watch the surfers, and then hop on the Metro at Cullercoats or Whitley Bay back to town.
