Bus Travel in Sunderland

Explore Sunderland's impressive galleries and other cultural charms

Sunderland was founded on the banks of the River Wear in the middle of the 7th century and today it's a truly modern city packed with many cultural charms. Make sure to wander down to Mowbray Park, a beautiful parkland in the heart of the city. Don't forget the arts; the Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art and Sunderland’s National Glass Centre should be top of the list.

Our Sunderland bus routes connect the city with Hartlepool, Darlington and other local towns and villages. So why not take the bus in Sunderland and avoid the hassle of driving?
