Any preconceptions I had of Newcastle upon Tyne were instantly blown away having spent a weekend in the city. I made the journey North to attend a conference but also took the opportunity to explore the city.
The position of this restaurant, sitting under the Tyne Bridge, instantly reminded me of New York.
On Sunday morning the weather had changed to grey skies, but it didn’t dampen my new found enthusiasm for Newscatle upon Tyne. I spent time delving deeper into the city’s rich history. Over the course of the weekend I covered quite a few miles and managed to see a lot of the key sights. It’s very easy to get around, the city, whether on foot, bus or metro. If you are walking though, just to let you know, Newcastle is hilly and has a lot of steps but worth it for the views.
