Tyne and Wear

The county owes its name to the River Tyne and the River Wear which flow through the region. Situated in the North East of England, this county has the urbanised cities of Newcastle and Gateshead (with the accompanying historical museums, state-of-the-art galleries, restaurants and shopping facilities) and the peaceful tranquility of the sandy beaches like Tynemouth.
