Away Fans Pre-Match Refreshments
Apr 2019 • Friends
Fabulous pre-match venue; friendly, knowledgeable staff and welcoming home fans. Our kids roamed freely, fascinated by the footballing memorabilia on display. Unlike museums stuck in the previous century, they loved the interaction with the staff, and the fact that they could touch and wear artefacts previously worn by their heroes, whilst the parents engaged with some pre-match banter with the home fans.

Good selection of refreshments and outside catering, although the queues were starting to build as kick-off approached.

Now SAFC museum
Jun 2018 • Couples
The old Monkwearmouth Station building is going to be opening as a football museum in July 2018. It's going to be called the Fans Museum (Twitter and Instagram @fansmuseum) and on Facebook too.
Great event at the SAFC museum @FansMuseum on Sunday with Colin Todd. Fantastic to see and touch some of the memorabilia including signed shiret, engald caps and a goledn boot.

Such a Shame
Sep 2017 • Couples
Built / opened in 1848 by Thomas Moore and it closed 120 years later. It features a restored ticket office but unfortunately the museum closed this year despite the Tyne / Wear Metro trains passing through. It is a fantastic looking Grade II Listed building and I have been fortunate to see the inside on a previous occasion.

Great little place to pop into

Shame more people don't visit here, it was very quiet. Good to sit in a bus cabin, see the old station hut. Pleasant visit for a few hours, place to sit and have your picnic.

A great bit of local history with amazing facilities, every child loves the lifelike bus they can sit in and pretend to drive.
