Explore Sunderland's impressive galleries and other cultural charms

Sunderland was founded on the banks of the River Wear in the middle of the 7th century and today it's a truly modern city packed with many cultural charms. Make sure to wander down to Mowbray Park, a beautiful parkland in the heart of the city. Don't forget the arts; the Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art and Sunderland’s National Glass Centre should be top of the list.
