heritage centreThe Heritage Visitor Centre

The Newbiggin Maritime Centre is a project that is currently under construction. For full details please visit

Newbiggin's own local history centre, situated at the Northern end of the promenade, hosts a permanent exhibition of local information and artefacts.

Visit the centre to see and hear exhibits on subjects such as the fishing community, mining, brass band history, cobles and boats, the people, the lifeboat, our schools and Christian heritage.

The main aim of the centre is to preserve the heritage of Newbiggin, and to instill a sense of pride in our community through all generations of visitors.

The Newbiggin by the Sea Heritage Visitor Centre is staffed by volunteers. Open throughout the summer season, admission is free, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays 1pm - 4pm, but opening times may vary, or can be arranged specially for groups at other times..

For further information on the exhibitions and special opening times, call Alfie Dower on 01670 856559.
