  • Description

    Roker Terrace, commands superb views over the sea. It was designed by renowned Newcastle architect John Dobson for the Abbs family who owned much of the land around Roker. The Roker Hotel was originally called the Roker Baths Hotel because the owner pumped sea water into the building in order to provide hot and cold showers and steam vapour baths for guests, the salt water being considered good for the constitution.
