Book your weekend break in NewcastleGateshead and scratch below the surface of this great city. You’ll uncover an exciting and intriguing side to this popular party city with all the components you need to have the perfect weekend away. 

Hit the shops at intu Metrocentre, Europe’s largest shopping and leisure complex. With 340 stores and restaurants, from designer boutiques to high street stores, you‘ll be spoilt for choice. When you need to put those bags down, there’s over fifty restaurants to choose from, from coffee shops to restaurants and bars open late into the evening.

And of course, a visit to Newcastle wouldn’t be complete without a stadium tour of St James’ Park which will be hosting three matches during the Rugby World Cup in October 2015. You’ll need a head for heights though as the rooftop tour isn’t for the faint hearted, but the panoramic views of the city are well worth it.
