Getting There & Back

The Reivers trail starts at Tynemouth Harbour, a scenic spot looking out to the North Sea with the Priory and Castle the first thing you see when you turn your face inland. To get there, first head for Newcastle. Then you have the choice of riding out to the starting point along the north bank of the Tyne, taking a taxi or taking your car. Aim for Tynemouth station, and when you get there, turn left into Station Terrace and first right into Huntingdon Place. Straight ahead until you join Front Street, which takes you to the coast. Turn right onto Pier Road and head for the car park. Then let the fun begin.
