Latest reviews | Events in Tynemouth | 10 Places to Stay

An historic village located on the north bank of the Tyne estuary, in north east England, Tynemouth next to North Shields, opposite South Shields on the south bank, just six miles from Newcastle upon Tyne. Before the two piers were constructed in 1854-95 at the river mouth, the notorious Black Midden Reef claimed many victims leading to the formation of the first Volunteer Life Brigade in the country. The Priory and Castle that stand upon the headland, overlooking the river, easily defended the Iron Age settlement with its views across both of the ‘shields’, the river mouth and surrounding sea. The Benedictine priory is where early Kings of Northumbria were buried and is combined with the moated castle-towers, gatehouse and keep of the Castle. The Danes destroyed the original Priory, thought to have been founded in 875. The villages of New York and Cullercoats, as well as the more economically significant town of North Shields, today form one area of which Tynemouth is considered a wealthy, upmarket suburb. Popular for its long, sandy beaches, Tyneside has in recent times become well known for its surfing and hosts international competitions. A more secluded beach next to the priory is King Edwards’s Bay, popular withLewis carroll, Algernon Swinburne and Charles Dickens.
