Whitley Bay's Spanish City Pleasure Buildings reopened in July 2018 following a two-year regeneration project which saw it transformed from a derelict shell to the tourist attraction it once was. The historic and architecturally significant Dome, built in 1910, had stood empty for almost twenty years until North Tyneside Council secured Heritage Lottery Funding to return it to its original appearance.

This book traces the history of the iconic building and its legendary amusement park.

This second edition book is much expanded on the first edition, with significantly more coverage of the amusement park, including the Figure Eight coaster, the Virginia Reel (including construction plans) and the mighty Corkscrew roller coaster.
