Tyne Riverside Country Park - Visitor Information

Save Cancel

Tyne Riverside Country Park follows the River Tyne for four miles through 200 acres of meadows, chalk grassland, woodland and river bank all within a short distance of Newcastle and Gateshead. 



You can explore the Park on foot or bicycle along Hadrianís Cycleway or Hadrianís Wall Path National Trail, or by following one of the many other paths and trails.  Alternatively you can use the Park for many other activities including fishing, horse riding, canoeing, orienteering, wildlife watching and exploring the remains of our industrial heritage.  Or perhaps youíd prefer to relax by the river and enjoy the view!



The Park Centre at Low Prudhoe provides toilets and rooms for hire by arrangement. Other facilities include picnic benches, a young childrenís play area and canoe launch at Prudhoe; a picnic site opposite Stephensonís Cottage; and an abseiling location for groups (by arrangement) at Hagg Bank.  The Park Centre and much of the Park itself are accessible for less able visitors.

The Country Park is a short walk from Wylam and Prudhoe train stations and Tyne Valley bus routes.
