We visited Tynemouth Priory on 31st July and decided to relax and sit on the wall overlooking the sea and were pleasantly surprised to see at the foot of the Priory a small, sandy beach sheltered by Cliffs & grassy banks.
The Beach is called King Edwards Bay and is an ideal sheltered bay for young children and adults to enjoy the clear water.
During our visit at 11am besides children playing in the sea a gentleman was floating in the sea whilst reading what appeared to be a newspaper (shows how calm the water was)
There are steps and paths leading down to the Beach (no problem for Buggies, wheel chairs, mobility scooters etc.)
There was a Portaloo toilet but his was locked, however there are toilets at the top next to the entrance to the Priory.
As Tynemouth is difficult for parking you can park along East street which overlooks the beach the charge is 80p per hour
Dogs are banned from the Beach from 1st May to 30th September.
We were extremely pleased to find this beautiful bay and will visit again soon; with swim wear
