Keel Square

Keel Square

Keel Square at the heart of Sunderland city centre plays host to many events and is a place full of Sunderland’s heritage.

The square, which was recently built and named by the public, celebrates Sunderland’s shipbuilding heritage with the ‘Keel Line’ and the ‘Propellers of the City’. The ‘Keel Line’ will contain the names of up to 9,000 ships built on the Wear and the ’Propellers of the City’ with art work by Bryan Talbot sits at the head of the ‘Keel Line’ and contains images of almost 500 workers from the shipyards.

The street furniture also details Sunderland’s twin and sister cities such as Saint-Nazaire, Harbin, Essen and Washington DC.

The square with its art work and fountains is certainly a lovely place to relax or take part in an event.

Perhaps Sunderland's most prominent landmark is Penshaw Monument. It was built in 1844 in honour of the first Earl of Durham, John George Lambton. Penshaw was modelled on Theseion, the Temple of Thesus in Athens.
