A Short History of Sunderland

Sunderland began as a fishing village situated at the mouth of the River Wear in 1100 and was made a town in 1154. In the 14th century shipbuilding began and over the centuries, the port of Sunderland grew, and by the end of the 17th century the town also had a glass making industry. It was in the 18th century that the shipbuilding industry in Sunderland boomed and the town became recognised for this. Sunderland was made a city in 1992. Key venues opened in the late 1990’s, including The Stadium of Light and the National Glass Centre (more information on these venues below.)
