Come and explore a faithfully restored 19th century coastal defence battery. This North-East visitors attraction boasts a unique history, being the only area to have seen ship-to-shore combat during the First World War and through out World War II up until 1956 with the disbanding of the coastal artillery forces.

The exhibits tell the story of those who lost their lives and the brave men who defended the area. Visit the original barrack room, now an exciting visitor’s centre, underground magazines, coastal artillery and observation tower. The Heugh Battery Trust Limited actively encourage many enactment societies to hold meetings and join in on the exhibitions held at The Heugh Battery Museum. Some of the activities include Gun Parades, Display Teams and the Drill Competitions open to all. 

Whilst visiting take a look around the workshop or take a relaxing break in Poppy Tea Rooms.
