Sunderland has one of the best seafronts in Britain. It is one of the city’s strongest assets and an integral part of its identity. However, it is easy for it to be underappreciated by some, and it might even go unnoticed that over the course of the past decade, it has undergone an incredible transformation.
Using Google street view, we have gone back in time to look at changes to Roker and Seaburn since the year 2008. By doing so, anyone is able to see that the regeneration of this area has been a resounding success and continues to gain momentum.
