Rail

Northern Rail train

Wearside and Tyneside are linked by fast Northern Rail trains, giving access to the heart of Sunderland and Newcastle city centres.

Every hour on the half hour, until mid-evening, trains leave both cities, calling at Heworth Interchange, also providing access to Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, the MetroCentre and Hexham. Rail services between Sunderland and Newcastle are funded by Nexus.
