Living in Tynemouth: The Local Area Guide

Tynemouth is a quintessentially British seaside town in Tyne and Wear. It is sandwiched between North Shields and Cullercoats and is just 8 miles from the vibrant city of Newcastle upon Tyne. Tynemouth packs a historical punch as its past spans from the Iron Age through to the Victorian Era. Landmarks such as the dramatic ruins of the Castle and Priory, which have been dominating the foreland for around 2,000 years, and the emblematic Collingwood Monument have been attracting visitors worldwide, as do the award winning Blue Flag beaches and breath-taking seascapes.

Aside from being a top tourist destination, the excellent transport links, gorgeous period properties and satisfying blend of shops, pubs and restaurants appeal to many who wish to live here.

Demographics

With over five million annual visitors, Tynemouth is a popular hub for tourists and rightly so. The town boasts a wide range of cultural attractions and festivals for tourists and locals to enjoy throughout the year. From the Food Festival to the Tynemouth Pageant, there truly is something for everyone here.

Currently, the population stands at 10,472, according to the 2011 Census records. Many who live here work in the tourism industry or in the education, construction and services sector. Since Tynemouth is well connected to other areas in Tyne and Wear such as Newcastle and Sunderland, many decide to relocate here to benefit from this.

Education

Although there is only one school in the immediate area, the surrounding towns of North Shields and Whitley Bay offer no shortage of educational opportunities.

At the primary level, Kings Priory School - which is also a base for secondary school children - enjoys a good reputation for pupil progression and attainment. Other primary schools in the surrounding area include, St Mary's Roman Catholic Primary School Aided which is located in North Shields and has an Ofsted rating of 'Outstanding'. King Edward Primary School is also situated in North Shields and demonstrates excellent pupil achievements in Maths, Reading and Writing.

The high academic standards remain at the secondary level. Whitley Bay High School and Kings Priory School have pupils leaving its establishments with brilliant A-level results in tow. School leavers can then go on to higher education institutes like the University of Newcastle, one of the UK's leading universities, which is a 30-minute journey on the metro.

Transport

Tynemouth benefits from its own metro station, which conveniently and frequently transports users to the rest of the borough and Newcastle upon Tyne. Residents who live here therefore tend to rely on either this timely, efficient network or their own car to get them from A to B.

On weekdays, the metro sees a significant number of commuters pass through its barriers travelling to cities like Newcastle. If you are looking to travel further afield, the Port of Tyne transports users daily to the port of Ijmuiden (Amsterdam) and Newcastle International Airport, which has its own metro station, offers convenient connections to other cities and countries across the world.

In the town itself, many tend to walk on foot to reach their desired location. The Sea to Sea Cycle Route, a favoured long-distance cycle route, runs through Tynemouth and allows you to cycle along the picturesque North East Coast.

Amenities & Shopping

Whether you are perusing or doing some serious shopping, you will be spoilt for choice in this pretty town. Tynemouth Village and The Green Ginger Arcade, a converted church, are two popular shopping haunts for tourists and visitors alike. Here, a riveting collection of restaurants, pubs, independent boutiques, antique shops and speciality stores can be found. If you like to party until dawn, there's also a vibrant nightlife present in the town.

You will also be able to purchase a host of odd wares and hidden gems at the quirky market held within the town's Metro Station every weekend. If, however, you're missing high street delights, popular shopping centres such as intu Eldon Square in Newcastle and the Metrocentre in Gateshead house all your favourite fashion brands and eateries. After a day of shopping, you can pick up dinner from the local co-op.
