    I was a little anxious at first but Pete and Rachel made me feel so at ease and we all laughed our caps off at their natural and humorous delivery of great historical stories. We were worried that the tour would be bland but the tunnel itself was facinating and Rachel and Pete ensured it was so much fun! It would have been great to see more of the tunnel but the tour was jam packed with interesting facts. Loved it. Would recommend.

    Did the stadium tour and it was absolutely awesome!! Carol our tour guide was brilliant, very informative and willing to do photos too! Well worth the £18, absolute bargain, for just over an hour and a half.

    Came to Newcastle for a weekend away with friends. Did a bit of sight seeing before going on the beer. It's a great part of town, lots to see and looks great at night all lit up.

    The routes around Jesmond Dene are very scenic, especially in the summer time. However, the river is a sorry sight because it is always an ugly shade of green, full of rubbish, and smells horrible.

    We had a surprisingly good time here with a 2 yr old and 2 x 4yr olds. I’ve been before many years ago but I could only remember the boat. Our little ones had a whale of a time especially upstairs in the science room, we were in there for ages! I would happily return here as I don’t feel we explored any of the other floors as fully and the kids were actively engaged.

    Cafe was ok, priced reasonably but it did feel a bit grubby, our table needed a darn good scrub.

    Shop was great and not expensive as these types of shops go! Happily bought a few wee toys for the kids 🤩

    Booked online then collected tickets at the Black Gate. There is a small museum on the first floor with some artefacts and background history. Then visited the Keep. Bit of a maze inside with various stairways leading into various rooms, just watch your head! Was more to the building than I actually expected. Various info boards and video to fill in the history. Great view from the roof.

    Grey Street is a magnificent street of Georgian architecture which forms one of the key parts of central Newcastle. This city has thankfully revived greatly from a significant decline in the 1960s and 1970s, and this is particularly nice since it really is a very lovely and striking city with beautiful streets and views beyond even the iconic scenes along the Tyne and its bridges. Grey Street is one of the most magnificent parts of the city. It is lined with a cohesive set of grand Georgian buildings and, with its gentle curves as it descends/ascends a gentle slope, this provides a particularly striking and scenic view. Moreover, it is partly pedestrianised and lined with cafes, pubs, restaurants, and shops, with much nice outdoor seating along the street, the pedestrianised quality making it especially pleasant and peaceful. Grey Street is at the heart of what has to be one of the grandest sets of Georgian urban architecture in the country. This is a magnificent urban scene worthy of any great city.

    This tour of the Cathedral was brilliant! I've lived here all my life and its only the 2nd time I've visited the Cathedral. The guide was funny and informative about the history, and in the cafe you can donate a hot drink to the homeless.

    Went with the kids to see the Demon Dentist. The production was fantastic and well organised. The performers were brilliant too. We thoroughly recommend the show. A great day had by all, Will be back for a return visit soon.

    First time here for lunch and can’t wait to return. Great gallery, friendly staff but it’s a shame that there is no table service & watch out for additional extras when you order at the till in the café.

    When you are asked if you ‘would like salad with that?’
    This is not an optional garnish. It’s an additional £10 from for two selections from the salad bar, and this information is not given voluntarily.

    To summarise:
    Food is delicious
    Coffee is divine - non-dairy options.
    Very clean
    Attentive and friendly staff.
    Great roof terrace
    Great views inside from the café
    Parking on site and off (unsure if it’s ‘pay & park’); and
    Clean lavatories.

    Unfortunately I went during half term so it was quite unpleasant in some respects however I managed to last an hour or so and spent a good deal of time looking at Hadrian's Wall and the Romans however the highlight of this visit is the temporary exhibition on Iraq and Gertrude Bell which was fascinating and virtually child free.

    Want a nightie? Or a bagel? Some black pudding or a wig? How about whelks, records, vintage T-shirts, some geordie themed aprons or heavenly glass of sherry. All this and more at the fabulous Grainger Market, which I have to confess we didn’t even know about until our short break in Newcastle. A must not miss gem in a brilliant city.

    Had a great time at the science museum and ice skating. Very busy with it being weekend and £5 tickets but lots to do for kids. Our daughter loved it especially braving the ice skating. My lack of ice skating ability and balance left me with a suspected bruised rib but it was good fun and staff were very helpful.
