Every trip should include ticking off the must-see cultural hotspots and attractions. Stroll along Grey Street to admire the famous architecture, sit at the feet of the Angel of the North or gaze up at the spire of Newcastle Cathedral. The beauty of Newcastle is its compact city centre which means that you can eat, sleep and experience a wealth of cultural activities without having to travel far.

Take in the striking sweep of Sage Gateshead which cuts an imposing figure overlooking the Quayside. Pop into the music venue for lunch in their café while you choose from a packed programme of live performance which take place throughout the year.
