NewcastleGateshead

Become an honorary Geordie when you visit the northeast's twin cities Newcastle upon Tyne and Gateshead. Criss-cross illuminated footbridges between the rejuvenated quaysides, get acquainted with Tyne and Wear history at local museums and galleries and cheer on the much-loved Magpies football team with the Toon Army, and you'll be halfway there. Shoppers wend their way through independent stores in cobbled High Bridge and go bargain hunting in Eldon Square's sales. Burn off plates of pub grub and gourmet cuisine in this foodie region with a stride in nearby country parks and river valley meadows.
