Whitley Bay Spanish City


Whitley Bay, Spanish City.

Whitley Bay Spanish City was built in 1910. The name comes from a group of performers who performed in the area against a backdrop of painted scenes from Spanish towns.
The Spanish City has recently undergone a major refurbishment to bring it back into use after lying empty for several years.
Spanish City was mentioned in the Dire Straits song Tunnel of Love.
Further along from the Spanish City is another major local landmark, St Mary's Lighthouse.
