              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.

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.
