Tynemouth Castle North Shields Reviews
Decent day out by the seaside Feb 23, 2014
Tynemouth is the seaside resort of choice for the locals in nearby Newcastle, and for the traveller, the most interesting thing to see is this reasonably well preserved priory/castle.
It is approximately 2000 years old, and its location affords some good views of the surrounding coastal areas. There's also an interesting interactive exhibit on the history of the castle, and the (inactive) gun batteries are undeniably great fun.
But there are more impressive castles/fortifications around, and the fact you have to pay a (reasonably low) entrance fee make this more of a place to visit if you happen to be in the region and have some spare time, rather than somewhere to go out of your way to seek out.
