Tynemouth, Tyne and Wear

Tynemouth lies precisely as its name suggests, at the mouth of the River Tyne. Head down to the beach at Whitley Bay, where Geordies flock with their buckets and spades to build sandcastles, or you could try and hang ten at the surf-hub Longlands. With its ruined Priory and castle, this coastal town can also offer a bit of history during your seaside holidays in a B&B.
