Attractions get in line with Metro offer

Families can make the most of their Easter holidays thanks to some money-saving offers involving Tyne and Wear Metro.

The system has teamed up with a number of attractions in Tyne and Wear for passengers to enjoy when they present a valid Metro ticket.

Among the attractions signed up include Tynemouth’s Blue Reef Aquarium.

Sharon Kelly, director of customer services and operations at Tyne and Wear Metro, said: “We have been working with our partners across Tyne and Wear to develop a wide range of money saving offers for the Easter holidays and we are very excited to be able to offer families an exclusive programme enabling them to try out something new.

“There are so many wonderful places that people can visit around the region, many of them easily accessible by Metro and for us, it’s really important to showcase all these great destinations as well as giving people a helping hand on their visit.

“We are also keen to encourage people to make their Metro DaySaver tickets go further, enjoying a fun family day out with unlimited travel around the network.”

The full list of offers, which run until Sunday, April 20, are available at
