Heugh Gun Battery Museum: Come and explore a faithfully restored 19th century coastal defence battery. This North-East visitors attraction boasts a unique history, being the only area to have seen ship-to-shore combat during the First World War and through out World War II up until 1956 with the dispanding of the costal artillery forces. The exhibits tell the story of those who lost their lives and the brave men who defended the area.


Visit the original barrack room, now an exciting visitors centre, underground magazines, costal artillery and observation tower.
