Sunderland Guide: Ryhope Village Green

Sunderland Guide Home

Location: Ryhope Road, Sunderland

Ryhope Village Green sits at the heart of a settlement that has existed since at least time of the Vikings. With classical buildings and pleasant greenery, Ryhope village offers a peaceful and refreshing glimpse of a longstanding history, a calm retreat from the urban core of Sunderland itself and a sharp contrast from the colliery area which later grew up around it.

The Ryhope Village Green hosts a war memorial, later associated with a famous ghost story, the site of a former railway station, several bars and guest houses, as well as the route onwards to Ryhope Beach, a must see natural wonder of the area.

Nearby Amenities: Albion at Ryhope restaurant and bar, Ryhope District and Village Club, Derwenthurst Club. Railway Cottage inn,
