Whitley Bay


The seaside town of Whitley Bay has been popular with generations of visitors. The iconic St. Mary's Lighthouse; now a visitor centre, stands on its own island and features a nature reserve and wetland habitat. Take a stroll along the promenade or beach and enjoy the salty sea air.

Popular as a party town, Whitley Bay comes alive at weekends and Bank Holidays when the young and young at heart enjoy the nightlife.

Intimate restaurants offering good food and good value are easy to find and if busy nightclubs aren't your thing, then friendly pubs are just around the corner.
The majestic Tynemouth Longsands; a golden sandy beach is popular as a place to enjoy the sun, take a relaxing walk or as a place to take part in watersports, especially Tynemouth surfing.

Complementing the award-winning beach is the village where you'll find an interesting mix of antique shops, fashion boutiques, eating places and superb village pubs. Tynemouth is steeped in history and there is no better way to discover that for yourself than by visiting the Priory and Castle which have stood guard over the River Tyne for centuries.
