Overlooking the North Sea and the River Tyne, it dominates the headland. With its 2000 year history and beautiful views it is the perfect location for a family fun day out. A popular spot to enjoy seaside fish and chips with a view and great location to have a picnic, lie back and enjoy the sea air. Discover Tynemouth's story of the site from its original beginnings as an Anglo-Saxon settlement, an Anglican monastery, a royal castle, artillery fort and a coastal defence. The gun battery built underground into the cliffs was designed to defend the Tyne in the First and Second World Wars.

Interesting place to visit, with spectacular views over the coastline. There is still quite a bit of the gatehouse keep still intact, but very little remains of the priory (what remains is impressive!). There is a small chapel with beautiful stained glass windows, and the gun battery is interesting.
