Go for a walk on the glass roof - not recommended for people scared of heights! This place showcases the glassmaking heritage of my city. You can even blow your own glass items. It's ideally located right by the river and is perfect to walk to from my house on a nice day. Stop in the café for a nice coffee and a bite to eat.

Fine Asian cuisine right on the seafront. This new restaurant is very popular due to it's location and good service. Expect to pay a little extra for this, but enjoy a great experience.

Sightseeing
What Sunderland is all about in my opinion - the beautiful coastline! Whatever you do if you stay at my place you must visit the beach area! Also watch out for the fantastic Sunderland International Airshow - the biggest weekend airshow in the UK. Usually takes place near the end of July.

Entertainment & Activities
Empire Cinemas - Sunderland
4 Lambton Street
The home of Sunderland AFC! My favourite team! Go and watch a match if there is one on when you are here. We will probably lose because we aren't very good but don't let that put you off, it hasn't put me off in 30 years :-) Also high profile concerts take place here in the summer. Beyoncé, Rihanna, Take That, Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi, Coldplay, Oasis, One Direction and many more have been here over the years.
