Coronavirus (COVID-19)

If you are planning on travelling distance to attractions, we would recommend that you contact the venues directly in advance to avoid disappointment.

If you, or any of your party have a new persistant cough, or develop a fever of 38C, we would instead advise you to use the NHS's dedicated website for professional advice.

Monkwearmouth Station Museum

The museum is housed in an original Victorian station building that was commissioned by the famous railway entrepreneur George Hudson and designed by Thomas Moore, Sunderland’s first notable architect. Seven interactive galleries have been developed as part of the £1million development of the museum, making learning about the history of travel and transport in Tyne and Wear fun and exciting.
The impressive classical facade, entrance hall and booking office have been restored to their North Eastern Railway condition and trains can be seen passing through from the Platform Gallery.
