Scream for Icecream

Parlour pleasures – where to get your fill of icecream in the North East this summer

wheelbirks icecreamWheelbirks, Northumberland

One of our faves because it’s a cool spot for grown-ups too. Icecream made on the farm with dazzling flavours from croissant to coffee to luscious wild cherry. A perfect orchard and playbarn for the little ones too.

On the outskirts of Darlington this is a day-out kind of place. Home-made icecream of course with a best-selling Gianduia – which tastes like Ferrero Rocher!

This is a grand place for a day out – use the ‘carrot’ of a fabulous icecream sundae as the finishing point of the lovely riverside walk from the old station round the river to Easby Abbey, it’s lovely.

Lickety Split

On the seafront parade at Seaham, the retro icecream parlour serves up a house signature dish of its special banana split with FIVE scoops of your choice topped with fresh cream and sauce of your choice. The only five-a-day you need.

Crescent Café/Arrighis

This family run café and ice cream parlour known locally as Delaval Ices, is a place of pilgrimage. The icecream is made to a secret, almost legendary family recipe and now there are many different flavours from crème brulee to bilberry.

Spurelli is seaside perfect in its home by the harbour in Amble. Award-winning flavours include Sicilian pistachio and other flavours include Alnwick Rum and raisin and wild berry. Enjoy them in a decorated cone, a cup or sundae.
