TAKE A CLOSER LOOK AT SUNDERLAND... Located at the mouth of the River Wear in North East England, Sunderland’s unassuming nature belies a deep and rich cultural heritage, beautiful parks and beaches, and hints at a city of regeneration. Once hailed as the largest shipbuilding town in the world, and with glass making and coal mining also being etched into the identity of the city, it’s industrial heritage is apparent in architecture and culture throughout the region. The Beacon of Light itself stands on the site of the Wearmouth Colliery, one of the most important in County Durham in North East England, and elements including the old pit wheel are on site as a reminder of those who worked hard to bring light to the region.

The River Wear, which once serviced this industry, weaves through the centre of Sunderland now banked with parks and paths. Within a five minute drive of the Beacon of Light is the beautiful and recently regenerated Roker seafront, with its picturesque vistas that once inspired painter L.S. Lowry amongst others, and within 15 minutes of the Beacon are a trio of peaceful parks – Barnes, Roker and Herrington Country Park – ideal for relaxing walks. The 49,000-capacity Stadium of Light, adjacent

to the Beacon, is home to Sunderland AFC, one of the most passionately supported teams in the country. The stadium is also recognised internationally as a major concert venue, hosting acts such as Beyoncé, Take That and Oasis. The city’s own thriving music scene includes the Mercury Award-nominated Field Music and the highly regarded Frankie and the Heartstrings. Welcoming locals are known to work hard and play hard and you’ll see plenty of evidence of this on your visit.
