Tynemouth is situated on the Northern mouth of the River Tyne between North Shields & Cullercoats.
Tynemouth Village had long been established in the shelter of the fortified Priory & now consists of Tynemouth, King Edwards Bay & the Tynemouth Priory which was first built as a Monastery in the 7th century.
The Priory was later fortified but taken by the Danes in 800, rebuilt & destroyed again in 875 & eventually became the burial place of Malcolm III, King of Scotland in 1093.
The blue flag beach of Tynemouth Long sands is just one of three beaches the village is proud to boast of.
