A hidden gem
Nov 2021
We came across this hidden gem by accident but we’re glad we did. A terrific little museum awaits anyone in the area with the added bonus of great views across the Tyne where it enters the North Sea. The volunteer who let us in was very happy to chip in with the odd fact or anecdote (apologies, I didn’t get your name) that helped to make this a great stopover.

An excellent place to visit. Lots of interesting things to see, and staffed by extremely knowledgeable staff with some wonderful views. Definitely worth a visit.

The Fascinating Watch House
Aug 2021 • Family
This place is a hidden gem. We visited with two children aged 6 and 10. They loved the views from the top and the photograph with the ghost lady in the window! It’s packed full of interesting artefacts. It’s free to visit but asks for donations. It won’t take you long to look around maybe half an hour but well worth a visit. We loved exploring this building.

Stunning views and wonderful historical detail

We used The Watch House as a film shoot location and were wowed by the artefacts, but mostly by the stories. Dave and Dave are wonderful story tellers and we loved hearing all of them.
So worth a visit.

Hidden Gem

The museum is such a hidden gem. My Bessie had her wedding here which allowed us to get closer to the beauty of the building and its work. Free to enter but please donate

Unfortunately, the picture associated with this review is of the Watch House Museum in Seaton Sluice, not Tynemouth.

A great experience for Young and Old

This is a little jewel hidden away in the best part of the North East. The Watch House or better known by the locals as the Tynemouth Volunteer LifeBrigade (TVLB) founded in 1864 after the wreck of the "STANLEY" the ships bell hangs in the museum and the watch house curator Mr Bill Scott will give you a guided tour FREE of charge as the musuem is run by Volunteers and charitable donations are welcome.( The building is painted Blue/ White with yellow window frames). The museum is open most days except monday thats bills day off his wife Cath will always make a stranger welcome just like a good geordie host.. Please come and VISIT, also visit a local Hero of Trafalgar " Lord Collingwood " his statue is a stone throw away from the Watch House.
