For the rain-lover
Go for a walk
The simplest of options is to head out in the weather. If you can’t beat it, join it. South Tyneside has beautiful parks that are perfect for strolls including South and North Marine park.
This may be one the kids will love and most parents will hate but heading out in wellies and raincoats to make mud creations can be real fun for some. The parks and beaches would be great for this.

Photography lovers could take out a waterproof camera and take some photos in the weather.
Head to the beach
Drop by the coast of South Shields and have fun at Ocean Beach Pleasure Park. If the rain gets too much, there’s always the arcades to shelter in.
Embrace the water
