But once you’re in the centre of Newcastle, it’s got to be the Tyne Bridge that stands out most.

Not a bad view for @coralofficial filming today!

While the Tyne Bridge is incredible in itself, a short walk along the banks of the River Tyne really does show off some of the city’s other impressive architecture.

One of the most impressive buildings in the city has got to be Newcastle Castle, a 14th century gateway to Old Newcastle.

Newcastle Castle is not alone in the grandiose department as Newcastle Cathedral clearly shows!

The cathedral’s inside isn’t too shabby either.

Just a short walk from the cathedral takes you to Grey’s Monument, one of the city’s most important landmarks.

Bonny Newcastle

The monument sits at the tip of Grainger Street, which is actually part of one of the most bustling areas in the city. Grainger and its surrounding streets are packed with shops, restaurants, bars and the popular Grainger Market.

Proper old skool M&S.

Newcastle is proudly one of the most culturally interesting cities in the United Kingdom, and its abundance of galleries, like Laing Art Gallery, just enhances this further.

Newcastle has plenty of museums too, with Great North Museum: Hancock proving incredibly popular with families.

But let’s face it, a trip to Newcastle for a European football fan wouldn’t be complete without visiting St James’ Park, the home of Newcastle United FC – its tall structure standing proud above the city beneath it.

There’s also a fitting tribute to late footballer Sir Bobby Robson outside the ground.

But if you just want to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, then Leazes Park would be right up your alley.

Leazes park is one of the most scenic places in town 👌

The picturesque park boasts lush green grass, a lake and plenty of wildlife!

For a real bit of local history, Newcastle’s Town Wall dates as far back as the 13th century, yet parts of it are still in tact.

Newcastle walls! #newcastle #citywalls #old

And for a further piece of north east heritage, have you seen Bessie Surtees House? The Jacobean, timber-framed former merchants house depicts lifestyles from the 16th and 17th centuries – when the building was built.

Did you know that Bessie Surtees' House on the Quayside is also the regional office for English Heritage & Historic England?

But for us, we love nothing more than strolling along the Quayside – particularly when it’s sunny!
