Tynemouth Castle and Priory

Tynemouth Castle and Priory was once one of the largest fortified areas in England. Standing on a headland, where the River Tyne flows into the North Sea and the River Tyne, the castle and priory have been local landmarks for 2000 years.


Tynemouth is 9 miles from Newcastle and is easily reached on the Metro making it a perfect location for a family fun day out.
