When most people think of England, London probably comes to mind. It is after all the biggest and most well known city in England and the greater U.K. Many people also know a few other cities like Birmingham, Manchester and York. The focus of this post is a cute little north-eastern town close to the city of Newcastle called Tynemouth.
Tynemouth is called as such because it's the start (a.k.a mouth) of the Tyne river. Here's a few pics of why it's worth your time to take a stroll along the Tyne.
Did I mention the castle overlooks a beach?
And leads to multiple beautiful walkways?
All the way to a beachside church?
Don't forget the weekend market in a charming train station
Ok, so how do I get there?
Take a train from London Kings Cross or Edinburgh to Newcastle Central Station. Once you arrive at the station, take the Metro to Tynemouth.
Newcastle Airport (NCL) has many UK, EU and international flights. Once you arrive at NCL, hop on the metro to Tynemouth.
