City Centre

Sunderland city centre

With so much to explore and experience in the city centre, you'll find something for all the family. There's a museum, art gallery, great open spaces, shops for every taste and budget and no shortage of places to enjoy on a night out, plus over 3500 parking spaces and excellent public transport links.

Varsity is very popular with the student crowd as well as those on the pub route to clubbing at the Cooper Rose. Popular for its cheap prices and lively atmosphere.
Westminster is located next to the box office of the Empire Theatre, and offers a selection of lagers, beers, wines and spirits.
This Wetherspoons based in the city centre serves good value pub food, light bites and snacks.  In addition there are also real ales, lagers and reasonably priced spirits on sale too.
Situated opposite the Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens and Mowbray Park, Yates's Wine Lodge is ideally located in the city centre. Good value meals are on offer, including 2 for 1 offers as well as sharers and pub favourites.
