Sunderland City Council
In Sunderland,... show more
In Sunderland, quality of life and quality of environment go hand in hand. The rapidly improving city centre has an enviable location, set right on the mouth of the River Wear next to a beautiful coastline and surrounded by easily accessible countryside. Add to that a range of outstanding heritage, cultural and sporting attractions and you'll find that Sunderland has everything you need for an ideal short break.
For example, the Sunderland Empire Theatre is the only theatre between Leeds and Edinburgh large enough to host major West End shows. Opened in 1907, the theatre boasts splendid examples of Edwardian architecture. Highlights for 2011 include Dinnerladies, We Will Rock You and Sister Act amongst many others.
