Living in Wallsend

Embracing historical significance

It is home to several cultural attractions, showcasing its Roman history and rich heritage. It’s perhaps best known for its historical significance as the eastern end of Hadrian's Wall. The town name itself derived from the wall's end (where Hadrian's Wall met the River Tyne), signifying the tale of its rich past. The famous Roman landmark can still be seen today at Segedunum, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Historically, it was a prominent centre for shipbuilding, particularly during the 19th and early 20th centuries. The town's famous history of shipyards has shaped its character, playing a crucial role in the construction of many famous vessels - including one of the fastest ocean liners of its time, the RMS Mauretania.
