Sunderland Vacation Packages
Sunderland is within easy reach of a range of colorful Newcastle-upon-Tyne’s well-known sights. Two sights that should be on every visitor’s to-do list is the fascinating Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art and the ever-popular Sunderland Museum. If time permits, be sure to also visit the St Peter's Church and the National Glass Centre.
If the sun is shining, follow the lead of the locals who know the area best and head outside to the nearby parks and reserves. Put on your hiking shoes and enjoy the popular ecological parks for which this area is famous, such as the WWT Washington Wetland Centre, the Herrington Country Park and the Marsden Rock Bird Reserve in South Shields.
A prominent feature on the Newcastle-upon-Tyne skyline is Gateshead International Stadium, Gateshead, the stomping ground of the Gateshead Thunder rugby league team in winter and the Gateshead F.C. soccer team. This multi-purpose facility is also a first class live performance venue, so be sure to browse the event schedule to see what’s on during your visit.
After a day exploring the delights of Sunderland, relax for the night in one of the area’s popular hotels or serviced apartments. If you’re looking for a warm welcome and a good nights sleep it’s hard to go past the Marriott Sunderland, the Quality Hotel Boldon, Boldon Colliery, and the popular Best Western Roker Hotel.
