Find Family Days Out In Sunderland

There are plenty of things to do in Sunderland, which offers families a great mix of sport, history and activities.

Start the day with the Sunderland Stadium of Light Tour. Go behind the scenes and sit in the dressing room where Sunderland AFC listen to their coach talk at half time. Walk out onto the pitch and imagine all the fans shouting and screaming for their team, as the anticipation builds in your stomach! A brilliant experience for all football fans!

Take a walk back in time on your Sunderland family day out at the Sunderland Museum and Winter Gardens where you can learn all about the history of the area, right back to prehistoric times. There are lots of artifacts on display and interactive exhibitions that tell the story of the city, along with a Winter Garden that features over 1,500 plants from all over the world.

Ever wanted to try glass blowing? It’s harder than it looks! Discover the tricks of the trade at the National Glass Centre, where you can see exhibitions and demonstrations of all things glass. It’s free to enter and there are activity sheets for the children.

On a nice day explore Roker Park. It has two play areas, a model railway and a boating lake if you wish to get out on the water. Take a ball for a kick about and there are free tennis courts if you happen to have packed your rackets!

There are lots of indoor activities too. Pick your favourite from Karting North East (suitable from age 5 up), the trampoline park Gravity Force Sunderland, Riverside Bowling and Laser Quest Sunderland.
