What to do in Sunderland

I’m there next weekend for the Great North Run and need to fill out Saturday with something that the thinly veiled would like. I was thinking Winter Gardens…is there anything else worth going to/seeing?

Assuming that you don’t have a car, then the Glass Centre is worth an hour or two. PopRecs is very good as well:

Newcastle> M&M World > China White’s > Spearmint Rhino > Stringfellow’s > Newcastle

No car, staying right in the middle.

Might just go to Newcastle

OXO tower

Eat some chicken dippers and wash them down with a blue drink.

Actually, I can’t work out whether PopRecs is actually still there, or runs as more of a pop-up these days.

I’m sure google will have the answers.

I think this is the latest address:

You must try the cheesy chips

Milks off!
