The Newbiggin Maritime Centre is passionate about offering engaging, creative and unique learning activities for schools, community groups and families.


Based in an exciting by-the-sea location just north of the Tyne we are perfectly placed to offer and facilitate outside of the classroom learning activities around multiple themes. Some of the subject areas we cover are science, history, nature and ecology and geography.


We can offer facilitated learning activities for schools, community groups and families. We also run a programme of bookable learning sessions and workshops. We recommend that you come and visit us in our unique location but if that is not possible we are more than happy to come to you!
