Sunderland, on the north-west coast of England, was a thriving port and centre for ship building in the 19th century. In earlier centuries it was a centre for religious learning, with an important Saxon monastery at Monkwearmouth. Guests at Sunderland hotels and B&Bs should visit the National Glass Centre, which tells the story of another major industry associated with the town, and the Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art. Alternatively, catch a football match at the Stadium of Light, home of Sunderland FC.
