"Tynemouth Abbey" Tynemouth Tip by jayhawk2000
Tynemouth, Newcastle upon Tyne: 5 reviews and 12 photos
This ruined abbey is at the mouth of the River Tyne, downstream from Newcastle, and overlooking the North Sea. You can take a ferry between Tynemouth across the river to South Shields. The boat trip is included in the price of a city-wide travel ticket and I found it fascinating to think of people being able to use a ferry to commute!
Along South Shields' seawall is a small lighthouse that's popular with local fishermen. You can watch ships sailing in and out of the port plus take in a sweeping panorama of the abbey on the north shore.
