    Really beautiful nature walk, best escape you can have from the Newcastle city buzz. There’s waterfalls, old buildings, cafes, a zoo, and a tree full of shoes! Great if you’ve got kids or dogs, or if you just need some peace and quiet. Well worth a visit.

    We had "budgeted" half a day for visiting the Discovery Museum. However, we found it so engaging that we ended up having lunch in the cafe there and continuing into the afternoon. Highly recommend a visit if you're in the area.

    Two floors of diverse contemporary art, covering graphic, figurative, abstract and sculpture. All for sale but no pressure, you are free to browse. Building is converted biscuit factory and it is a stunning space, light flooded, exposed brick work - perfect. The range of artists means there is always something stimulating. really impressive. Cafe/restaurant is excellent too - enjoyed the all day breakfast stottie!

    What a wonderful theatre. I had not been for many years but came to see Rigoletto in March. Took me back to my school days when we were often there. Beautiful building, magnificent inside and out . The opera was terrific too.

    A visit to this indoor market should probably be kept short.
    It was very cold in Feb. Some stalls are quite nice but there are a lot of cafe style eateries within the market.
    The mac and cheese place sounded nice but I wasn't ready for lunch by then.
    They have the oldest, smallest Marks & Spencer stall. Only worth taking a photo - actual goods were not worth looking at.

    A large piece of Newcastle's history and a must see when in the area! I think it's so majestic and even though i crossed it by car many times when i was younger, I still love to see it every time I'm back in Newcastle.

    The Rising Sun is a family place. People of old and young can be seen here day after day. Wether they are walking/running/cycling it's always bustling no matter what the weather, It's great on 5th Nov as you can climb to the top and watch the fireworks from across the full city.

    It was really nice took our 4 year old and 2 year old on this little trip to the life centre. Our 4yo was amazed by it all with the activities that was around his age. He loved the planetarium. We enjoyed ourselves quite well. Our 2 year old was mezomirised by it all too. Will be coming here again :)
