We visited here whilst we were in Tynemouth and we were really glad we did. It's great place to walk around and steep yourself in all the history of the place.

Excellent venue for summer concerts. Food and drinks choice were good, shame about portaloos, which are always questionable

One of the review said that it was free but it wasn't. Beautiful setting and surrounding area. The town has many good restaurants, pubs and shops. Good day trip from Seaham.
