Enjoy the Tyne
Rising in the wild uplands of Cumbria and Northumberland, the South Tyne and the North Tyne converge near Hexham, a historic market town. The Tyne flows mainly eastward towards the vibrant urban centre at Newcastle before reaching the North Sea at Tynemouth.
The Tyne river system offers a hugely diverse range of enjoyment for people from all walks of life. Many will want to enjoy the wildlife amidst dramatic rural scenery, far away from the hustle and bustle of city or town life.
Others come to experience the thrill of a tightening line as a fish takes; whether coarse, game or tidal fishing, the Tyne rivers are an angler’s delight.
The rivers also offer fantastic opportunities for all sorts of recreation, from walking their banks to wild swimming or canoeing. River cruises in Newcastle offer a wonderful way to observe the city’s bridges and busy Quayside restaurants and bars.
