Pleasant and interesting centre
tony502016, Morpeth, United Kingdom
Called in here to see what it had to offer as although I live in the area I had never been before. The museum was very informative and it also had some very nice gifts and souveniers in the shop. We then called into the cafe where I had a very tasty prawn mayo sandwich with salad and crisps and my wife had the tuna mayo sandwich. We enjoyed these very much and the service was efficient with pleasant staff. Lovely views over the beach and sea from here. There were a few guitarists and singers in who were very good. Altogether a pleasant experience and I would recommend this centre to anyone who is a visitor to Newbiggin or anyone living in the area who has not been here yet.
What a lovely place to visitQ

Visited Newbiggin Maritime Centre today and also took in the excellent new attraction of the Rocket House next to the oldest operational lifeboat house in the UK. What a hidden gem Newbiggin by the Sea and the Maritime Centre is! Visitors to Northumberland usually head up the coast but if you have time its well worth visiting these attractions with good food and coffee at the Maritime Centre with friendly staff. For a small village Newbiggin by the Sea should be very proud of the Maritime Centre, Rocket House and lifeboat house. You can also walk into the village centre from the large car park next to the Maritime Centre. Well worth a visit!
An absolute must!!
A lovely place that is great for people of all ages. Its very informative and very interactive for the little ones. It's right on the beach so you can grab a drink from the cafe, and sit right on the sea front and watch the world go by! It also has a wonderful little gift shop that is very inexpensive and all the staff were so friendly. I 100% recommend a visit to the Maritime Centre.
RNLI do a fantastic job. All should learn about this

Find out about the history of Newbiggin, even the property you may be staying in. How the birth of the RNLI has roots within this community and how important it remains to be to the area in the current period.
Good food at a good price

My soup was delicious as was the lightly toasted half baguette with it. My scone was a little dry. My grandson enjoyed his fish and chips and I got two full cups of tea from my pot. The view from the centre over the bay is lovely.
