New Homes In Sunderland

Live the Life

Located on the North East coast, Sunderland is a bustling coastal city with lots to offer its residents, from vibrant shopping districts to cultural attractions, top sporting facilities and more. So whether you enjoy a spot of retail therapy, bracing seaside walks or family-friendly days out, your new home in Sunderland will have something for everyone.

Things to see and do

For a little culture, pay a visit to the Sunderland Museum and Winter Gardens where you’ll discover the city’s past before seeing the works of the iconic L S Lowry in the art gallery. The gardens also have an impressive display of plants and flowers, ideal for a relaxing weekend stroll.

If you’re a sports fan, you can go and see top-flight football at the Stadium of Light, home of Sunderland A.F.C. The city is also home to Sunderland Aquatic Centre, while North Lizard Riding School, Penshaw Equestrian Centre and Whitley Bay Ice Rink are all close by.

For shopping, go and visit The Bridges indoor mall where you’ll find lots of high street brands, or browse independent boutiques at Park Lane Shopping Village. Other popular places to visit in the city include the National Glass Centre and Monkwearmouth Station Museum, an 1840s building with interactive exhibits and a children’s gallery.

If you’re in need of greenery and fresh air, take the family for a walk through Mowbray or Roker Park, or enjoy a morning out at Herrington Country Park where you can walk, cycle, or even see an open-air concert. Roker and Seaburn Beaches are also popular, whether you’re taking the dog out on a windy winter’s day or making the most of the sunshine during the warmer summer months.


Sunderland is home to a number of top schools, including St Mary’s Roman Catholic Voluntary Aided Primary School in Ashbrooke, Bernard Gilpin Primary School in Houghton le Spring, Dame Dorothy Primary School in Monkwearmouth and Barnwell Academy in Penshaw. Secondary schools rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted include St Anthony’s Girls’ Catholic Academy, Whitburn Church of England Academy and Harton Technology College, while Argyle House School offers independent education.

For degree-level and vocational courses, higher and further education is provided in the city at the University of Sunderland and Sunderland College, while Newcastle University is just a short distance away.
