Whitley Bay is a seaside town in the northeast English county of Northumberland. In the 19th century the town became a popular holiday resort and it remains a hub for domestic tourism in the area.
Opened in 1898, St Mary’s Lighthouse is one of the most iconic emblems of Whitley Bay. Sitting upon a tidal island, the lighthouse offers stunning views down the coast as well as informative exhibitions and a gift shop. The scenery around the island is the main reason that so many locals and tourists come to enjoy St Mary’s, with local wildflowers making an occasional appearance, too.
Tynemouth Park is a key green space just off Longsands beach that includes a boating lake, picnic areas and swaths of woodland. The area has become a hub for local families and plays an important role in Whitley Bay leisure culture. Wildlife enthusiasts come to see the regional wildflowers which bloom here each spring and summer.
Throughout the area, Floom’s Whitley Bay flower delivery covers every inch of the town.
