Bravo 'Tyne and Wear Archives and Museums on behalf of South Tyneside Council'...
Just the outline of the walls of the inside of the fort with an occasional well or feature visible; but this is compensated by the excellent museum and the magnificent gate-house which housed a collection of Roman...

There are spectacular views of the surrounding Leas and coastline to be had from the top of the lighthouse (accessible by some rather steep steps, but worth the climb), whilst the site also houses a small museum,...

Fabulous little museum that is entry for a donation, and has Lego displays, and lots of interesting local history, with lots featuring Catherine Cookson, the mining, and ship works.
Visited the museum recently and found it to be extremely varied and a fascinating insight into the North East with many references to both Catherine Cookson who was born in Shields and the heavy industry that made...

Segedunum and Arbeia are run by Tyne and Wear Museums both sites are worth a view if you are interested in the history of the Roman occupation of England.
The museum is small but well defined and the lookout tower offers great views of the Roman fort ruins and the River Tyne, including the dockyards.

everything is for sale here and it is very well laid out so you feel like you are in a museum, just with small price tags next to the art.

The exhibition itself was really well constructed with plenty of space around the information panels and the exhibits without feeling sparse in the 2 rooms was something that some other museums and galleries could...

We've seen a Seven Stories 'on tour' exhibition at The Jewish Museum in Camden - Judith Kerr - and found that the exhibitions - Michael Foreman, Nursery Rhymes and Jim Kay (illustrator of a new version of Harry Po...
