About North Tyneside

North Tyneside has miles of award winning golden sands stretching from Whitley Bay to Tynemouth, both resorts in their own right. This area is sometimes known as Newcastle’s coast. It also includes the quaint little fishing village of Cullercoats, complete with smugglers caves and golden sands but still a working harbour for fishermen.



The impressive ruins of Tynemouth Castle and Priory overlook the river mouth, piers and lighthouses and the bustling North Shields Fish Quay. The Tynemouth Volunteer Life Brigade Watch House is a hidden little historic gem overlooking the piers at the mouth of the River Tyne on the Spanish Battery. Tynemouth village is a genuine visitor attraction in its own right, and a delight to wander the main street with its impressive range of unusual little shops including an antiques village, and lots of little cafes and teas shops, pubs and restaurants. The Roman fort of Segedunum, Wallsend also lies within North Tyneside.
