Free admission

When the Rocket House opens to visitors admission will be free of charge although donations are welcome to help maintain this important part of Newbiggin’s maritime heritage

Opening times

The Rocket House will be open to the public on August bank holiday weekend 2017. Opening times: Saturdays & Sundays from 10.30am to 4.00pm.


The Rocket House is located at the end of Sandridge, a narrow residential cul de sac with residents only parking. We would therefore request you to park in the nearby Church Point car park (NE64 6DP, free parking) and follow the signs from there along the promenade to the Lifeboat Station (5 minute walk). The entrance to the Rocket House is immediately behind the Lifeboat Station.


The Rocket House is a small building with restricted access but accessible for wheelchair users.
