As the first Bank Holiday of the year approaches, here are some of the best visitor attractions and places to go in south east Northumberland and North Tyneside according to Tripadvisor.
There is something for all ages, whether it is a trip back in time to the old mining and fishing communities, looking at the Romans creations, or just for a walk in one of the many parks.
As well as the visitor attractions, there are also an array of independent and high street shops in each town centre, beaches, leisure centres and more.
