A Sunny Sunday Visit to Tynemouth Markets

Metro Arrives at TynemouthVisitors stepping off the Metro at Tynemouth a couple of Sundays ago were welcomed by a beautiful sunny (dare we say Summer’s) day and a bustling marketplace with the usual wide array of goods on offer.

As regulars will confirm, there’s no such thing as a ‘quick visit’ to Tynemouth Markets, It takes two to three hours just to have a good old root around and get your bearings.

Then it’s time hunt out those great bargains… anything from a vintage Dinky toy to hand-made soaps, fantastic photo-art or even a brand new guitar.

The choices of products and the range of stalls is breathtaking and a trip to Tynemouth Station on any Saturday or Sunday (sunny or not) is something visitors never forget.

      I have to admit I don’t know the answer to that one. Hang fire and I’ll find out the situation regarding the book market. Once I have the information I’ll post it on the site.

      Just reporting back with dates and times for ‘Book Markets’ at Tynemouth, which take place four times a year. The next event is on Sunday 14th August (next Sunday) and the following market will be held on Sunday 9th October. I’ll post a full list on the website as soon as future dates are finalised.

      No problem Neill, let’s hope it helps to promote business. Speaking of which I’ve just put up the new Social Networking buttons on every page and article throughout the site. If folks like an article they can now easily share it on their Facebook and Twitter accounts. There’s even more to it so I’ve added a short explanation page which shows how to use the buttons On This Page

      Check it out and let me know what you think:)
