Accessibility

The Visit South Tyneside website is committed to providing a website that is accessible.

Having a more accessible website means it is available to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability.

We are actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of our website and in doing so adhere to many of the available standards and guidelines.

By continually making the website more accessible for people with visual or motor impairments the site becomes easier for everyone to use and web pages load more quickly.
