Good evening! And indeed a very good evening to all of you!
This Saturday will stay in our memories forever, today the Duchess of Cambridge gave a birth to a baby daughter. We do celebrate this fact and share our congratulations with happy parents!!!
For many of us here in the UK we have also some other reason to celebrate – it is a long weekend! Hoorey! Some break from the every day hassle, extreme recovering power for all hard-working people.
I was wondering where to go next time I can move out of Gatwick (Surrey) and got a dilemma. England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland are gorgeous and it is impossible to visit all at once. I thought of England, and more specifically, the City of Sunderland for the beginning.
I have had a look at “things to do” and realized that people of any age and any sex can have great time there. A list of landmarks worth visiting are below, maybe think to choose something for yourself:
- Fulwell Mill National Trust
- Herrington Country Park Country Park Accessible Open Space
- Hylton Castle English Heritage
- Monkwearmouth Station Museum Museum
- Mowbray Park Accessible Open Space
- National Glass Centre Museum
- North East Aircraft Museum Museum
- Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art
- Penshaw Monument National Trust
- Roker Park Accessible Open Space
- Roker beach Accessible Open Space
- Ryhope Engines Museum Museum
- Seaburn beach Accessible Open Space
- Souter Lighthouse National Trust
- Sunderland Empire Theatre
- Sunderland Museum and Winter Gardens Museum
- Stadium of Light
- Sunderland Volunteer Life Brigade Museum Museum
- Peters Church English Heritage (World heritage site applicant)
- Washington ‘F’ Pit museum Museum
- Washington Old Hall National Trust Historic House
- Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust
I will be honest, I have not yet visited Sounderland but I put this place on my list. If you have some experiences share these with me, and all others reading this blog – we would appreciate it.
