Situated on the North bank of the Tyne, close to Newburn, There is Tyne Riverside Country Park.
A popular country park for outdoor recreation and sports which is great for walking , cycling and horse riding with a large network for footpaths and public rights of way including Hadrian’s Way, which links up with Hadrian’s Wall National Trail and the Wylam Waggonway.
The large play area with swings, slides and climbing units is popular with families. They also have a little workout area too.

Their products are made to be of the highest quality and always reasonably priced. This is a great stop when grabbing a hot or cold drink for a long walk along the walk.
We often grab a hot drink on those colder days, they offer a miniature takeout cup for the children too. The girls love getting a mini hot chocolate.
