Hello Garry, I am glad you mostly enjoyed the Jersey Boys musical at the Theater Royal but you've mistakenly attached this review to Iles Tour's Cultural tour of Newcastle! I hope you've had a fantastic time in Newcastle though! Best wishes, Alexander Iles Iles Tours.

Alex provided us with a tour of Newcastle that started with very early history and led to present day with many hidden gems as we travelled forward in time. So interesting to learn about Newcastle’s quayside and be able to ask questions as we discussed...More
