Sunniside

Sunniside the historic core of Sunderland

Sunniside is the historic core of Sunderland, and at the height of our shipbuilding powers, this was the business centre of the industry.

In more recent years a programme of urban development has established Sunniside as a centre of culture, film, dining, entertainment and art in the city. Sunniside Leisure Complex is home to a 12 screen cinema, casino, ten pin bowling and restaurants, and close to Sunniside multi-storey car park.

Sunniside Gardens is a lovely open space with seating, sculptures and water features, ideal to take a breather from a busy day in the city. 

The area is home to bars and cafes including Angelos and Bar Justice.
