Children’s first visit to the seaside in the 1960s

In the late 1960s, children from Byker were taken to the seaside for the very first time despite only living five miles from the coast.

They enjoyed paddling in the sea, eating fish and chips and a few rides on the fairground in Whitley Bay.

The footage has been released as part of the BBC Rewind archive project – to help celebrate its centenary.

The BBC is giving you access to thousands of films reflecting life around the UK since the 1940s.
