The City of Sunderland is located in the far eastern border of England and on the southern part of Tyne and Wear. It falls under a local government district of Tyne and Wear which is close to the border of southern Scotland. Firmly placed in North East England it has the status of a city and should not be mistake for the larger metropolitan borough which is named solely as Sunderland. The many towns it covers are Washington, Hetton and many other rural based areas. The population is estimated at two hundred and ninety thousand people for the whole urban district and most of population is located in the City of Sunderland. The City of Sunderland is twinned with cities like Essen and Harbin.
The history in terms of the metropolitan borough came into existence during 1974 as this is the year it was formed, even though there were several other mergers as well. The status of city came about in 1992 but was refused a Lord Mayor in due course.
The shipping trade prospered a great deal during the 1940s and 1950s and many tons were shipped to other countries. However like many industries it suffered some decline and it eventually closed in the late 1980s.
There have been massive changes in Sunderland and this is despite many of its industries coming to a stand still. Much of the changes have occurred through business districts. Many other sites have also been modified and include housing in the urban district. Some of the new renovations include the Stadium Village and The Holmeside Triangle.
The main attractions of the area include The Sunderland Empire Theatre which is regarded as the largest in the North East and hosts many high profile events. It went through a great deal of refurbishment in the past so that it could carry out major shows and keep up with demand.
Other sites include the Stadium of Light stadium which is home to Sunderland Football Club, The Bridges Sports Centre, Sunniside area, Sunderland University and Sunderland Museum and winter Gardens. The Northern Gallery of Contemporary Art and the City of Sunderland College is also worthy of a mention. Sunderland is part of the SR1 postcode region.
For transport the railway links are supported under the Sunderland Station. The station has improved as years have gone by due to the central railway system being linked to the London service. In the last few years the services have increased with new trains being introduced.
Surprisingly for road travel there have been no motorway systems in the area for a long time. The roads are run under the A19 and also the A1018. There is also the A690 and the actual city of Sunderland comes under the A1231. Bus services are run under the Arriva North East and Go North East.
