Great photo opportunities, excellent setting, moody; forgot membership card but was still let in for free. Not very much to see so glad I didn't have to pay!

“Fantastic fun as a family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Brilliant day out, ancient graveyard, castle ruins, priory, creepy church and the amazing war 'bunker' style ammo rooms, big guns and much more. This is a must see for any history buff or anyone wanting to educate the kids whilst they explore at will! Take a picnic and enjoy the views of the North Sea and the Tune spilling into it.

“Conection with the past”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

this historical place in the tynemouth is awesome, it have a plenty of places to park your car, and walk around.

Beside that, there are a lot of restaurant around where you can enjoy a good coffee, good briskets and many more.

you can go there using the train which is a better option, drive for me is optional considering the right issue, jejeje.
