From beautiful beaches and countryside, to theatres, museums and galleries, there's plenty to see and do in Sunderland. Many of the city's attractions are free and all offer a great family day out, packed with fun.

Sunderland is a welcoming, bustling city set right on the coast and at the mouth of the River Wear. We have wide sandy beaches and acres of green spaces. Our cultural offer includes Sunderland Empire Theatre, National Glass Centre and Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens. Add to that a fascinating history, outstanding sporting attractions and a family-friendly programme of events and festivals, you're sure to have a great time in Sunderland.
