Favourite Regeneration Project
Spanish City, Whitley Bay – a spectacular Grade II listed building, known for its famous white dome on the seafront. Once part of the Spanish City funfair, it had sat derelict since the early 2000’s. A Heritage Lottery Fund grant contributed to the refurbishment, and it reopened in 2018 as a stunning hospitality and dining venue. As a local lad, and having played a part in its regeneration, it’s fantastic to see it up and running!
