History[edit] Main article: Tynemouth Castle
Tynemouth Castle
and Priory

An aerial shot of Tynemouth
Castle, taken in 1917, which was a major coastal fortress and the control centre of the Tyne defences, which stretched from Sunderland to Blyth.

The headland towering over the mouth of the River Tyne
River Tyne
has been settled since the Iron Age. The Romans may have occupied it as a signal station, though it is just north of the Hadrian's Wall
Hadrian's Wall
frontier (the Roman fort and supply depot of Arbeia
stands almost opposite it on the southern headland of the Tyne). In the 7th century a monastery was built in Tynemouth
and later fortified. The headland was known as Pen Bal Crag.

The place where now stands the Monastery of Tynemouth
was anciently called by the Saxons Benebalcrag — John Leland at the time of Henry VIII

The monastery was sacked by the Danes in 800, rebuilt, and destroyed again in 875, but by 1083 it was again operational.[4] Three kings are reported to have been buried within the monastery: Oswin, King of Deira
(651); Osred II, King of Northumbria
(792); and, for a time, Malcolm III, King of Scots (1093).[5] Three crowns still adorn the North Tyneside
North Tyneside
coat of arms. ( North Tyneside
North Tyneside
Council, 1990). The queens of Edward I and Edward II stayed in the Castle and Priory while their husbands were campaigning in Scotland. King Edward III considered it to be one of the strongest castles in the Northern Marches. After the Battle of Bannockburn
Battle of Bannockburn
in 1314, Edward II fled from Tynemouth
by ship. A village had long been established in the shelter of the fortified Priory and c. 1325 the Prior built a port for fishing and trading. This led to a dispute between Tynemouth
and the more powerful Newcastle over shipping rights on the Tyne which continued for centuries. (For more history see North Shields). Prince Rupert of the Rhine
Prince Rupert of the Rhine
landed at Tynemouth
in August 1642 on his way to fight in the English Civil War.[6] Climate[edit] Tynemouth
has a very moderated oceanic climate heavily influenced by its position adjacent to the North Sea. As a result of this, summer highs are subdued and according to the Met Office
Met Office
1981–2010 data around 18 °C (64 °F). As a consequence of its marine influence, winter lows especially are very mild for a Northern English location. Sunshine levels of 1515 hours per annum are in the normal range for the coastal North East, which is also true for the relatively low amount of precipitation at 597.2 millimetres (23.51 in).[7]

About Tynemouth[edit] Beaches[edit]


In the late 18th century, sea-bathing became fashionable in Tynemouth from its east-facing beaches. King Edward's Bay and Tynemouth Longsands are very popular with locals and tourists alike. Prior's Haven is a small beach within the mouth of the Tyne, sheltered between the Priory and the Spanish Battery, with the Pier access on its north side. It was popular with Victorian bathers[8] and is now home to Tynemouth Rowing Club and the local sailing club. King Edward's Bay (possibly a reference to Edward II) is a small beach on the north side of the Priory, sheltered on three sides by cliffs and reached by stairways, or, by the fit and adventurous who understand the weather and tides, over the rocks round the promontories on the north or south sides. Longsands is the next beach to the north, an expanse of fine sand 1200 yards long, lying between the former Tynemouth
outdoor swimming pool and Cullercoats
to the north. In 2013, Longsands was voted one of the best beaches in the country by users of the world’s largest travel site TripAdvisor. TripAdvisor users voted the beach the UK’s fourth favourite beach in its 2013 Travellers’ Choice Beaches Awards. The beach was also voted the 12th best in Europe.[9]

King Edward's Bay

Front Street[edit] A statue of Queen Victoria
Queen Victoria
by Alfred Turner, unveiled on 25 October 1902, is situated at the edge of the Village Green[10] which is home to the War Memorials for the residents of Tynemouth
lost during the Second Boer War
Second Boer War
of 1899-1902. Designed by A.B. Plummer, it was unveiled on 13 October 1903 by William Brodrick, 8th Viscount Midleton. The larger central memorial is made of white granite with a cruciform column rising from between four struts in a contemporary design for its time. The front face has a relief sword and wreath carved onto it with the inscription below. The other three faces hold the honour roll for those lost during both World Wars. It was unveiled in 1923. DM O'Herlihy was named as the original designer but a press report stated that a Mr Steele designed the monument and credited O'Herlihy with preparatory works on the village green.[11] The 82 names from World War II were added in 1999.[12] Maintaining transport links between Tynemouth
and Newcastle is Tynemouth
Metro station, originally opened in 1882 as a mainline station catering for the thousands of holiday-makers who flocked to the Tynemouth
beaches. Its ornate Victorian ironwork canopies have earned it Grade II listed status. They were restored in 2012, and the station now provides a venue for a weekend "flea market", book fairs, craft displays, coffee shops, restaurants, exhibitions and other events.[13] Kings Priory School[edit]

Kings Priory School

Located on Huntington Terrace, Kings Priory School
Kings Priory School
(formerly The King's School) is a co-educational academy with over 800 pupils aged between 4 and 18. Though founded in Jarrow
in 1860, the school moved to its present site in Tynemouth
in 1865 originally providing a private education for local boys. The school has an Anglican tradition, but admits students of all faiths. Formerly a fee-paying independent school, in 2013 the school merged with the local state Priory Primary School to become a state academy.[14] Former King's School was named in reference to the three ancient kings buried at Tynemouth
Priory: Oswin, Osred and Malcolm III. Its most famous old boy is Stan Laurel, one half of the comedy duo Laurel and Hardy.[15] Hollywood film director Sir Ridley Scott, and racing driver Jason Plato also attended the school. Tynemouth

This massive stone breakwater extends from the foot of the Priory some 900 yards (810 metres) out to sea, protecting the northern flank of the mouth of the Tyne. It has a broad walkway on top, popular with Sunday strollers. On the lee side is a lower level rail track, formerly used by trains and cranes during the construction and maintenance of the pier. At the seaward end is a lighthouse. The pier's construction took over 40 years (1854–1895).[17] In 1898 the original curved design proved inadequate against a great storm and the centre section was destroyed. The pier was rebuilt in a straighter line and completed in 1909.[18] A companion pier at South Shields protects the southern flank of the river mouth. A lighthouse was built on the North Pier in 1864, but when the pier had to be rebuilt to a new design a new lighthouse was required. The work was undertaken by Trinity House, beginning in 1903; the lighthouse was finished before the pier itself, and was first lit on 15 January 1908.[19] It remains in use today. Before the pier was built, a lighthouse stood within the grounds of Tynemouth
Priory and Castle. It was demolished in 1898-99. It stood on the site of the now-disused Coastguard Station. The Spanish Battery[edit] The headland dominates the river mouth and is less well known as Freestone Point. Settlements dating from the Iron Age
Iron Age
and later have been discovered here.[20] The promontory supposedly takes its name from Spanish mercenaries who manned guns there in the 16th century to defend Henry VIII's fleet. Most of the guns had been removed by 1905.[21] It is now a popular vantage point for watching shipping traffic on the Tyne. The Collingwood Monument[edit]

The Collingwood Monument

Beyond the Battery and commanding the attention of all shipping on the Tyne is the giant memorial to Lord Collingwood, Nelson's second-in-command at Trafalgar, who completed the victory after Nelson was killed. Erected in 1845, the monument was designed by John Dobson and the statue was sculpted by John Graham Lough. The figure is some 23 feet (7.0 m) tall and stands on a massive base incorporating a flight of steps flanked by four cannons from The Royal Sovereign - Collingwood's ship at Trafalgar.[22] The Black Middens[edit] Main article: Black Middens These rocks in the Tyne near the Monument are covered at high water, and the one rock that can sometimes be seen is called Priors Stone. Over the centuries they have claimed many ships who "switched off" after safely negotiating the river entrance. In 1864, the Middens claimed five ships in three days with many deaths, even though the wrecks were only a few yards from the shore. In response a meeting was held in North Shields
North Shields
Town Hall in December 1864 at which it was agreed that a body of men should be formed to assist the Coastguard in the event of such disasters. This led to the foundation of the Tynemouth
Volunteer Life Brigade.[17] Religion[edit] Tynemouth's Parish Church is the Church Of The Holy Saviour in the Parish of Tynemouth
Priory. It was built in 1841[23] as a chapel of ease to the main Anglican church in the area, Christ Church, North Shields. In Front Street there were two other churches, the Catholic Parish of Our Lady & St Oswins,[24] opened in 1899, and also Tynemouth
Congregational Church, which closed in 1973[25] and is now a shopping arcade. Coast to Coast Cycle Route[edit] Tynemouth
is the end point for the 140-mile (230 km) long Coast to Coast Cycle Route from Whitehaven
or Workington
in Cumbria.[26] Blue Reef Aquarium[edit]

Blue Reef Aquarium

Undersea aquatic park, containing seahorses, sharks, giant octopus, frogs, otters and many other creatures. Its Seal Cove is a purpose-built outdoor facility providing an environment for a captive-bred colony of harbour seals. The 500,000-litre pool includes rocky haul-out areas and underwater caves, specially created to ensure marine mammals are kept in near natural conditions. A ramped walkway and viewing panels have been provided so visitors have an opportunity to admire the creatures from both above and below the waterline. Demography[edit] In 2011, Tynemouth
had a population of 67,519, compared to 17,056 a decade earlier.[27] This is mainly because of boundary changes rather than an actual population increase, for example, North Shields
North Shields
was a separate urban subdivision in 2001 and had a population of over 36,000. Shiremoor
was also a different urban subdivision, with a population of almost 5000 in 2001.[27] The 2011 definition of the town of Tynemouth
includes North Shields
North Shields
along with some areas in the north west of the town such as Shiremoor
or West Allotment. However using 2011 methodology boundaries Tynemouth
had a population of 60,881 in 2001 (this is not the actual 2001 population of Tynemouth, just the population of the 2011 boundaries in the 2001 census). This means that Tynemouth
has become a larger area in both size and population means.[28]

Notable visitors[edit] Charles Dickens
Charles Dickens
visited Tynemouth
and wrote in a letter from Newcastle, dated 4 March 1867: 'We escaped to Tynemouth
for a two hours' sea walk. There was a high wind blowing, and a magnificent sea running. Large vessels were being towed in and out over the stormy bar with prodigious waves breaking on it; and, spanning the restless uproar of the waters, was a quiet rainbow of transcendent beauty. the scene was quite wonderful. We were in the full enjoyment of it when a heavy sea caught us, knocked us over, and in a moment drenched us and filled even our pockets.' Lewis Carroll
Lewis Carroll
states in the first surviving diary of his early manhood, that he met 'three nice little children' belonging to a Mrs Crawshay in Tynemouth
on 21 August 1855. He remarks: 'I took a great fancy to Florence, the eldest, a child of very sweet manners'. Algernon Charles Swinburne
