Hoswick Visitors Centre

The Visitor Centre provides a welcoming venue for locals and visitors to the area. The Cafe provides delicious homebakes and light lunches all made to order as well as space to display items collected and preserved. The Centre includes weaving machinery, local items and an interpretation of the Hoswick Whale case. One of the main focuses is the unique wireless collection, which follows radio, domestic marine and military equipment form the early 1900's through to the mobile phone innovation of today.
