Tynemouth Priory and Castle is open for visitors to explore the English Heritage site overlooking the North Sea. You need to book tickets in advance: https://bit.ly/3hnQd3C

Tynemouth Castle and Priory was once one of the largest fortified areas in England. Overlooking the North Sea and the River Tyne, it dominates the headland. With its 2000 year history and beautiful views it is the perfect location for a family day out.

The interactive 'Life in the Stronghold' exhibition takes you on an exciting journey. It tells the story of the site from its original beginnings as an Anglo-Saxon settlement, an Anglican monastery, a royal castle, artillery fort and a coastal defence. The refurbished battery gun was designed to defend the Tyne in the First and Second World Wars and can be explored.
