Visible from far away, thus monument is a great place to remember the past. Even in the middle of winter the walk to get to see him is worth the effort.

This should be a must for anyone visiting this area. Lord Collingwood was important to the area and the monument is a good place to appreciate the views across the River Tyne. Look and enjoy. Appreciate the past.

This really is a very impressive monument to a great man. Well worth a visit not only is it a monument worth visiting, the views from here are amazing. Free car park right at the foot of the hill the monument is on.

If you go to Tynemouth Priory you should visit this monument, it is about a 10 minute walk from the Priory. Stunning views once you get there.

Standing on its plinth overlooking the mouth of the River Tyne Lord Collingwood's monument is easily reached from the nearby carpark. There is a descriptive panel about Collingwood at the base of the monument, reached via steep stone steps, but beware, there is no handrail.
