Newcastle & Gateshead are joined by seven bridges across the River Tyne, the most Famous being the Tyne Bridge, so good it was the inspiration for the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
World class culture, award winning dining and a vibrant nightlife combine to make NewcastleGateshead a must visit destination. Great shopping provided by Eldon Square, one of the UK’s largest city centre shopping complex and the beautiful architecture of Grey Street rival any city.
The Quayside is a spectacular area day and night with the iconic Gateshead Millennium Bridge, the world’s first and only tilting (blinking eye) bridge, linking Newcastle and Gateshead for pedestrians and cyclists. BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art is an art-lover’s dream, whilst Newcastle’s array of riverside bars, pubs, clubs and restaurants, paired with The Sage Gateshead’s diverse programme of musical events, ensure you’ll be well catered for through daylight to nightlife.
Be sure not to miss Antony Gormley’s iconic Angel of the North as it welcomes travellers to the area.
