This monument is dedicated to the memory of one of England’s greatest naval heroes.
If your not into this in anyway, the site provides one of the best views out over the river Tyne and North Sea and is worth
the walk. However if you are interested in history and the original ships guns from the Royal Sovereign this is a must visit site

Stunning Landmark in Fantastic Location
Aug 2021
This is an epic monument in its own right but its positioning makes it very special. From here there are far-reaching views down the coast as well as of the mouth of the river Tyne, its piers and shipping. Take binoculars with you!

This statue is a Naval homage for me.

Admiral Collingwood is well remembered as taking command after Horatio Nelson was tragically killed at Battle of Trafalgar. His service to King and Country in naval warfare is perfectly celebrated looking over the mouth of the River Tyne. In Chichester, West Sussex, there is another Nelson Admiral honoured called Admiral Sir George Murray. Its worth going to Portsmouth to see these British heroes or Greenwich Naval museum.

Impressive monument
Jun 2021
From the town you approach the statue from the rear but you climb the steps at the front where the Admiral is looking out to sea. There are cannons from his ship The Sovereign at each corner. This is a massive structure, the plinth alone with massive steps is huge. It is such a shame that the base is covered in broken glass. It is set in a large grassy area surrounded by trees and it overlooks the docks at North Shields and the priory, castle and lighthouse in Tynemouth. The views are magnificent! It is very impressive and dominates the landscape.

Lush view

Arguably the best view in Tynemouth looking out to sea and across to South Shields . Nice grass area to sit and a nice piece of monumental history

Go take a look
Feb 2020 • Couples
You can see this memorial from the Main Street in Tynemouth so we walked down to take a look. From the town you approach the back but you must walk around the front to get the best view. Around the front you will see a plaque and four cannons with the admiral looking out to sea.

This huge old monument dominates the north bank of the final stretch of the Tyne before it flows seaward, terrific views, cannons from his ship accompany the statue, a worthy tribute to a major figure, Nelson has his column but Collingwood looks out to sea. An easy walk from Tynemouth village.

Interesting

Such an interesting character and life. Less well known than Nelson but just as important historically. Worth a visit just to read about him.
