The north east county of Tyne and Wear is brimming with cultural quayside cities and sandy North Sea beaches like Tynemouth Longsands where the surf is almost always up. Visit Tyne and Wear to discover cosmopolitan Newcastle and Gateshead museums and galleries for a dose of its Roman heritage, cross neon footbridges between redeveloped quays, or chant with the ‘Toon Army’ at a Magpies game - you'll soon feel like a true Geordie! Head to Sunderland for sparkling shopping malls and landscaped Victorian parks, not to mention more football, and stop by Washington to visit the Wetlands, one of the most unique things to do in Tyne and Wear.
