Places to visit in NewcastleGateshead

The twin cities of the North East are linked by a series of iconic bridges crossing the Tyne. The rejuvenated quayside is home to internationally regarded music arenas and art museums in addition to its many bridges. Get acquainted with the broader Tyne and Wear area in its local museums and galleries or cheer on the beloved Newcastle United with the Toon Army. Shoppers can wend their way through independent stores in cobbled High Bridge and go bargain hunting in sales at the Metro Centre or Eldon Square. Polish it all off with some pub grub or gourmet cuisine, a drink or two in the trendy Ouseburn valley, or a walk through one of the many parks in Newcastle.
