Whitley Bay is a thriving community and is popular with day-trippers thanks to the stunning coastline. The beautiful beaches are dominated at the northern end by St Mary’s Island lighthouse, which was first lit in 1898. Whilst it is no longer in working order, visitors are able to climb the 137 steps to the lantern room and take in the breathtaking views.
From the lighthouse there is a beautiful coastal path to walk along the sea front, which leads you along the beaches and into the centre of Whitley Bay itself.
There is plenty to do along the way including mini golf, the Links Art Gallery as well as a traditional café for the obligatory ice cream. Family entertainment in the area is in abundance with Whitley Bay Ice Rink and the Wet 'n' Wild water park being other particular local highlights.
West Park also benefits from several more practical amenities, with a Sainsbury’s supermarket and West Monkseaton Metro station within walking distance, and a great range of shops both in Whitley Bay itself and at the Boundary Mill Retail Park in Shiremoor. Newcastle city centre is roughly ten miles away whilst the A19 and Tyne Tunnel are easily accessible for those that need to travel further afield.
At West Park, Taylor Wimpey are offering the ideal combination of fabulous new homes and a location which is perfect for your family in every way.
