Pocket Guide: Newcastle-upon-Tyne National Glass Centre Hotels

The National Glass Centre is a popular tourist attraction located in Sunderland, Tyne and Wear. Opened in 1998, the National Glass Centre is free to visit and a great day out for anyone looking to learn more about the glass making process and its history. Located in easy reach of many top Sunderland hotels and guesthouses, the National Glass Centre is a great day out for the whole family.

Discover the History of Glass from Hotels in Sunderland

Glass making in Sunderland goes back over a thousand years and was likely introduced to the region in the late 600’s. However, it was the industrial revolution in the 19th Century that really spurred on Sunderland's glass making industries, that and the local abundance of sand and coal. The glass industry took a serious blow in recent years, with Sunderland’s last two remaining glass firms closing in 2007. Opened in 1998, the National Glass Centre remains a testament to glass making in the region, and a fascinating place to learn about its long local heritage.

Get to Grips with Some Glass at the National Glass Centre

The National Glass Centre consists of a fascinating museum, with multiple galleries and temporary exhibitions that explore the history of glass making. The methods of making glass are alive and well, and the National Glass Centre is the chance to try your hand at some glass blowing. Visitors also have the opportunity to buy some glass pieces at the souvenir shop (expertly created by in-house artists). The National Glass Centre is also a place to learn, offering adult and children's courses as well as formal study and postgraduate research. For refreshments, stop by at the Glass Yard, a modern restaurant open for breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea.

In Easy Reach of Top Quality Newcastle Tyne & Wear Hotels

The National Glass Centre is well placed in the heart of Sunderland close to many top hotels, including the Travelodge on Sunderland High Street West, The Best Western Roker Hotel and Ramside Hall Hotel & Spa, which is around 10 miles away.
