Sunderland – have a great fun during the bank holiday in May 2015!

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.
