With its unique blend of spectacular coastal scenery and rich local heritage, it's no wonder South Tyneside attracts more than five million visitors a year.
Renowned for its free festivals, fascinating culture and vibrant entertainment scene, the Borough is becoming an ever more popular tourist destination.
South Tyneside has a strong advanced engineering and manufacturing sector exporting across the world through the Port of Tyne.
There are also exciting plans to regenerate the Borough's riverside and town centres and a determination to strengthen its economic base to attract new business and job opportunities for its 153,700 residents.
