A great day out with the cafe having views second to none on the North East coast and really breathtaking. Well worth a visit and well worth the £2.50 fee for the museum.

A new attraction with nice staff and a very big lifeboat . Restaurant good be better but they need time to bed in. Kids will love the activities. Look out for the special kids activities days.

The New centre tells the history of the lifeboat and fishing in Newbiggin By The Sea where I was born and brought up.

There are some great archive images from my childhood and beyond which show life as it was and is very interesting

A great little mueum of the lives of a fishing community, and also of the life boat.

PLUS a great little restaurant with a superb view around the beach and bay so you can sit and have a cup of tea while the kids play on the sand. Local ice cream. 3 course Sunday roast for £10.

Lovely rock pools at low tide, and wide expanse of soft sand running round the bay.

Great place for a day trip
