Address: Front Street Tynemouth
Newcastle-upon-Tyne has a great metro network, and for the north Tyneside coast, you need the circular yellow line...you can't really go wrong, because the trains are plastered with "to the coast". From Central Station or Monument, it takes about half an hour to reach Tynemouth. Tynemouth Station is just a couple of minutes' walk from the main street leading to the sea.
The station building is huge, dating from better times when Tynemouth was a popular holiday resort. At weekends, the vast platform is trasnformed into a second-hand book market and a general flea market.
If you buy a day ticket for the metro, you could travel back a different way, maybe taking in Whitley Bay and Cullercoats, or maybe head to South Tyneside...for that, you need to either walk or take the metro to North Shields, hop on the ferry (included in the metro network) to South Shields and pick up the metro again from there...or keep walking south down the coast until you hit Sunderland, the end of the line. More details on this walk are in my old travelogue on my Newcastle-upon-Tyne page...

I know, this is common sense, but if you're traveling with kids, or you are liable to try some crazy things, this must be re-iterated. Don't lick the seaweed in Tynemouth. If, like me, you ever have the urge to do so, go to Tesco or Sainsbury's and buy some sushi.

There is parking and it is only one penny a minute in Front street, or 60pence a hour elsewhere.
Payable in the local machines there are 3 on Front Street.
Unique Suggestions: Dont chance, not getting a ticket, as the warden are always around and is it worth it for a fine of up to £80 pound. Even if popping into the local chippy (Marshalls) you will get caught.
