Sitting proudly in the north eastern corner of England, Tyne and Wear is one of the most vibrant, diverse and culturally fascinating parts of the country. From its rugged coastline to the cosmopolitan cities of Sunderland and Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Tyne and Wear is well worth visiting. And if you want to sample the very best of Geordie hospitality then stay in a Tyne and Wear bed and breakfast hotel.
Lots to See and Do in Tyne and Wear Bed & Breakfast Hotels
Although Tyne and Wear isn't the largest county in England, it does have a huge number of amazing tourist attractions. Once a proud shipbuilding region, the mouth of the River Tyne opens onto the North Sea and has a stunning, rugged coastline, where you'll find charming seaside towns like Tynemouth and Whitley Bay – not to mention beautiful beaches. Get out of the big cities and large towns and you'll find some stunning countryside and plenty of trails where you can get your boots or cycle tyres muddy, for example at South and North Marine Parks in South Shields.
Many of Tyne and Wear's most popular attractions are, unsurprisingly, to be found in the big settlements such as Gateshead, Newcastle and Sunderland. These include some fascinating museums, notably The Great North Museum in Newcastle-upon-Tyne and The National Glass Centre, a museum of all things to do with glass-making (unsurprisingly!) located in Sunderland. If its historic monuments you're after, you'll find plenty dotted throughout the country but largely concentrated in Newcastle's Old Town, such as the magnificent Newcastle Castle.
