The Coast

The Coast line around Newcastle is amongst the most beautiful in the world.  Starting from Tynemouth we will try to give you a feel of the marvelous scenery.

Looking toward the Tyne And Shouth Shields, to the right you can see a statue of Lord Collingwood.  Born in Newcastle 1748 Cuthbert Colling wood rose from humble origins to become one of the most decorated men in England
Collingwood died in1810 onboard the Ville-de-Paris. The statue was erected by public subscription 

Whitly Bay and Cullercoats
These two seaside resorts still hold a place of fondness for many people in the North East, even Dire Straits sung about them in the song Tunnel of love. I am sad to say that the Spanih City is now closed down, many of us have special memories of this fair ground and the fun it brought us from being babes in arms to taking our own children and watching their smiling faces. Walking along the links will bring you to St Marys Lighthouse. To get to this monument you will have to cross a cause way, so take note of the tides as it can become covered very quick.

Blyth
Blyth dates back to the 12th centuary the harbour and docks were formed about 1854. This town has seen many changes over the past number of years but it has still held on to it's outside market on Tuesdays and Satardays.  Blyth beach is still a good place to go to stretch your legs or let the  kids go wild.

North Shields
This river side town is situated on the banks of the Tyne near Tynemouth.This once small fishing town has changed so much that even the locals dont reconize it. It was home to the Window on the World music festival now sadly ended allegedly because the council got into debt with it (politics) spoils every thing it touches. The fish quay is well worrth a visit why not buy some fish and chips and have a nice stroll to tynemouth along the river side
