Surround yourself with golden sands and scenic cliffs as you tuck into some classic fish and chips on the sweeping beaches and uninterrupted views out to the North Sea.



Away from the sand, sea and family attractions, there are quaint villages and bustling riverside towns to be discovered.

At The Word they celebrate the written word through a unique and fascinating exhibition programme in an award winning building. Discover the world of Anglo-Saxon Northumbria and the Venerable Bede at Jarrow Hall and the nearby monastic site of St Paul’s.
