Our kids loved this! Perfect for a sunny day. Cafe was lovely with an outdoor seating area. Would recommend for a piece of history in a local area.

Really good centre with café. Good exhibition and learning space along with a small shop. Monthly exhibitions by local artists. Café area is generally busy and is well staffed by a friendly team. Pretty good range of food which is tasty!

The centre is in a new building at the end of the sea wall/esplanade. All on one level so easily accessible. It is full of interesting information and artefacts relating to this once flourishing fishing area.

It was a sunny, windy, showery Saturday when we visited Newbiggin, so the Maritime Centre was a good place to visit. We started with a good coffee in the cafe and enjoyed the expansive views and some live music from a group of folk musicians....More
