The rejuvenated quayside is home to famous cultural hubs including music arenas and art galleries in addition to its seven iconic bridges. Cheer on the beloved Newcastle United with the Toon Army and explore Georgian streets on a shopping trip in Grainger Town followed by even more shopping at independent stores in High Bridge and the famous Metro Centre. Wrap up your break with a drink or two in trendy Ouseburn, or a visit to one of many world-class museums and attractions in the city centre.
