When is it?

9th April - 7th October 2017

Where is it?

Thomas Cook Airlines Quayside Seaside


The Quayside Seaside is back! From April 9th, escape to the Costa del Tyne, our pop-up beach is in-situ on the Quayside for the whole summer.

The Quayside Seaside always signals that summer is on its way and is a key element of summer in the city – for the past few years the beach has been a welcome addition to the city’s summertime events calendar.

This year the beach is supported by Thomas Cook Airlines, who will be organising a programme of fun family activities throughout the summer.

Equipped with sand, climbing wall, deck chairs, palm trees and volleyball court, the Quayside Seaside is hugely popular with visitors to Newcastle, families, and with Quayside workers who swarm to it to enjoy lunch al fresco or a sneaky game of volleyball after work. 

Plus, now you can grab a bite to eat while you’re there, with Mexican food of the highest order courtesy of Barrio Comida, contained within a repurposed shipping container.

Wile away an afternoon in the sun, or take your lunch somewhere scenic, however you use it, the Quayside Seaside is a fantastic addition to our wonderful city’s summer offering.
