A frugal Summer

Summer is SOOOOO expensive. The North East has a great range of free activities, so I'm including on this page a few resources to find some free or very cheap things to do. 

I am not affiliated with any of these events - just sharing as I think they look interesting. Please check with the organiser before heading to any events in case there are any cancelled or rescheduled events. 

A Frugal Summer

A post with loads of ideas for FREE or cheap (Less than £7 for an adult and 2 children) days out. Including places you could visit every day and one off events over the summer holidays.


Cool down when it gets hot

Most of these splash pads and paddling pools are FREE entry. Details on locations and opening times here. 





North Tyneside Summer Festival

Brilliant resource. North Tyneside's summer offering is excellent. Huge range of free and cheap activities on throughout the summer, from pre-school classes in Tynemouth Station, to magic and comedy on Whitley Bay seafront. Will keep you busy all summer long.
