  • Day 2: Christmas Eve in Newcastle

    Today we visit the vibrant city of Newcastle. Famous for its industrial heritage, its brown ale, popular nightlife and distinct ‘Geordie’ accent, there’s a lot to do in Newcastle. It began life as a Roman fort on Hadrian’s Wall in 122AD and from there has developed into a cosmopolitan city. Visit one of Newcastle’s many museums and galleries, the Castle, or the Gateshead Millennium Bridge, an unusual structure spanning the River Tyne. Of course there are plenty of shops that are perfect for some last minute Christmas shopping, and many restaurants and pubs to enjoy.
