Tynemouth, England

Tynemouth is situated on the coast approximately 8 miles east of Newcastle upon Tyne. Unfortunately some of the aquarium shots are a little blurry as they dont allow flash photography........... to add to this I forgot to walk down my favourite street! Oh well, this is what I got

ps. Check out my other threads from the same trip!
Newcastle - The big city in North East England
Hexham - Typical English Market Town





I'd happily take any of these











The station which has been part of the Tyne & Wear metro since 1982 hosts a market on Sundays specialising in art and collectables. The station was originally built for the North Eastern Railway in 1882 and has recently been restored.



Aha, I told you! North Eastern Railway.





And a Metro train for good measure.









Yummy











Too many of those cupcakes from the market?







I meant to go through this archway to see the beautiful Georgian houses behind but I forgot!



Lots of little Restaurants and Cafes dotted around.



Tynemouth Priory dates from the 7th Century, sadly it only lasted a couple of hundred years before a bunch of Danes destroyed most of it in the year 800.



Into the Aquarium









Slightly odd place to find monkeys but I'm not going to complain.





I Kept noticing charging stations all over the place, at least someone is making it worth their while.



St. Marys Lighthouse a couple of miles up the coast.



Spotted an oil rig under construction on the way back.

Nice! They've done a brilliant restoration job on that station - it reminds me a bit of Marylebone in London.

It was pretty impressive, that is just one section of several that will be floated out to see and later bolted together.

Actually, most of those aquarium snaps came out very good.
If you had used the flash, I'm betting that the reflection of the glass would've given you white snaps anyways.

Won't be going quite that far north next year. Hope to upload some bridge pics from Newcastle.

Great pics, I had never really heard of Tynemouth before but it looks like a great little place. There are some fairly unusual and ornate house styles by the looks of it too.

Nice tour. I visited Tynemouth a couple of years ago and was really impressed... and that was just from seeing the priory and main street! I didn't see the station; that old tile map is great.
