|Route outline (key)|
The A190 is a short A-road in north Tyneside.
The road starts on the edge of Dudley at a roundabout where it meets the A189. It heads east and soon goes under the A19 before running through Seghill. Here there is a level crossing on a goods-only railway line.
On leaving Seghill there is a brief rural section before the next village, Seaton Delaval. On the far side of town the road crosses the A192 at a roundabout. It then runs along a pleasant straight, tree-lined road called The Avenue. Before becoming the A190 this road was the drive to Seaton Delaval Hall - and as the road meets the gate to the hall grounds the A190 turns sharply to the left to pass to the north of the hall, now owned by the National Trust.
On the far side of the estate the A190 resumes its previous line and quickly enters the coastal village of Seaton Sluice. It ends to the north of the village centre at a roundabout on the A193 on the edge of the dunes.
