Lived in Sunderland since I was a child and there is so much more that could be done with Roker Park, the illuminations are always worth a stroll, but park could have a lot more potential.

Queen's parade is on the sea front and has about 10 places where you can eat (although some of these may only open on an evening) With children in mind, I recommend Martino's
