Museum & Winter Gardens

Sometimes it is good to be a tourist in your own area and visit the local attractions like an out-of-towner. So this is what I did a couple of Saturday's ago, ventured into Sunderland's Museum & Winter Gardens.

No self-calling Geordie would ever choose to cross into Wearside territory usually. But as I am only an adopted Geordie*, I guess it doesn't count.

So a few pictures from my time in the museum & gardens, all thankfully spent indoors as it was a cold, wet and blustery October day.

* For anyone outside of the UK, a 'Geordie' is someone born and raised in Newcastle upon Tyne (or thereabouts) in the North East of England.
